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.
The worst two of the four are currently on the back wheels and the best of the two are on the front.
If I get two new tires, should I have them mounted on the front or rear wheels for winter driving?
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.
Thanks for your help!
