Those are brilliant tyres!! Just that the sidewall is a little soft and the life of the tyres is a little less. Maximum around 40k.

Otherwise, they are really fantastic!

Default Re: Ohc 2nd Round Of Tyre Change-new Priorities

Hi all,

I know this is 5 years old since the post. I hope some of you have your OHC's still.

I was wondering if you could help me with on a tyre installation matter. It just happens that I had installed a new pair of bridgestones for the front wheels. The old ones ran for 60, 000 km.

Now this was 5k km ago.

I've just bought a pair of yokohomas. It happened that way. I can't go and exchange.

I have currently put the new 2 Yoko's in the rear wheels.

A query I have is, are they better up front? I thought since the drive and most of the brakes are mainly handled up front those 2 should be new.

So, may I know how would you do it?
Do you recommend I put them at front or leave at the rear?

The front bridgestones are in good nick. I don't see any wear and tear. And no punctures at all.

Tread pattern - the new Yoko's have 2 grooves each, quite deep all around. The bridgestones are quite common ones, Squrish blocks type of pattern.

My driving is about 60% highways. All 4 tyres are the exact size as the originals.
