    Default Need help with tyres for 4X4

    I have to replace a tyre on my ranger, because it has worn out unevenly. It seems that the camber is out which i will get sorted out. i was thinking of replacing both front tyres so that i have the same tread.I would like to know if it will make a difference when driving on road and off road if i have 2 different sets of tyres in front and back? The tires i currently have are Michelin LTX AT2 but they seem to be discontinued. i can find some here and there, but was wondering if i should change 2 now and then 2 later. What other tyres could i use in place of the LTX AT2's?

    Most important to keep tyres on same axle same size, circumferences can vary slightly from manufacturer to manufacturer even though profile is same spec, so best to keep same tyre make and type on each axle.

    With above in mind, shouldn’t be an issue if you replace front set now and rears later.

    Downside of replacing just front set comes when wanting to rotate tyres, you will be limited to fronts to back and vice versa. Not a biggy......

    Thanks for the info. 4 -5 tires is going to be a bit rough for one shot

    Any tyre with the same width and profile will be fine.

    Michelin LTX A/T2 is still selling.
