I bought a 1999 Toyota Camry XLE in August in Utah and now have it in Massachusetts. I knew, when I bought the car, that the tread on the front tires was wearing thin but the tread on the back was still pretty good. A few months later, I'm looking to purchase just two new tires (instead of four) due to financial restraints.
<br/> The worst two of the four are currently on the back wheels and the best of the two are on the front.
<br/> If I get two new tires, should I have them mounted on the front or rear wheels for winter driving?
<br/> Do I need more traction on the front to be able to dig in? Or do I need it in the back to keep the rear of the car stable in turns in wintery conditions. I've had the rear end slide around a bit during a turn at an intersection at a very low speed -- I suspect mostly due to lousy tread.
<br/> Thanks for your help!
