Thumbs up

There's no ambiguity on FWD vehicles... but on RWD? (Fronts still steer and brake more..)

it might depend on how you drive, but i think the rears wear faster.

I've seen both... Fronts, definetly. Mom has a 2000 Ford FWD wagon... tires bald quickly. My rears are still good, IN FACT, I had Perrellies (sp?) on my 190E2.6 for 5 years, from new, and put on them 50,000mi. Still had plenty of tread in the rear (rwd) with more wear on the fronts when I sold her back in Nov '04.

Diving, braking, cornering, hell, just turning the wheel causes more wear.

I could be wrong, just my experience.

if you drive fast, it is almost always the outer edge of both front tires, unless you have INSANE negative camber dialed in. i am beginning to see mine go at about 10 kilomiles.

of course, smoky burnouts will kill rear rubber quickly: if you do drifting it will take about 4 hours
