    Rear or Front tires last longer

    Hi,

    I acquired a RWD Manual transmission 335 with Sport Pack and Bridgestone RFT's. Could anyone tell me which tires will wear out first, rears or fronts under normal driving conditions? When I bought the car the fronts had twice the tread as the rears so I am trying to figure out if I should change all 4 or just rears. The fronts are in very good shape. THX!

    My tire wear 07 335

    The day after I bought my 2007 335 in August 2007, I started traveling for work, on average 190 days a year.

    My 335 only has 26k miles. My fronts tires on the outside are almost worn to the belts, the rears, perfect even wear.

    Now my 99 MZ3 is quite the different. I usually have to have two sets of rears per one set of fronts. I never was able to keep the rears more than 13k miles. Heavy right foot I guess.

    sports car = sports car tires = change often. Bookmark tirerack and discount tire.
