There not bad lol, just not a name brand tire they all have around 75% tread on them. The front one had a slow leak but I got that fixed so that was the only problem. I think ill put on rear though

+1. Agreed. Just store your new tires in a covered dry place.

There winter tires though and were going to get 30" this weekend and the tires I have now are just regular summer tires so the traction is horrible even though they still have fairly alot of tread.

I don't think new tires are going to help with 30" of snow... lol

Yeah I know that, that's not why I bought them. 1 deal day for mechanics that work at dealerships for 80$ originally $180/piece. So I bought 2 winter tires. My car will be garaged this weekend with 30" of snow

The question was. If you only have 2 winter tires where is the best to put them on the front or the rear? But I think I'm just going to put them on the rear because better traction and less chances of fish tailing ..and it's easier to control the car when the front gets away from you then when the back does.
