^^^ This.

When inspecting my car before I bought her a couple days ago, I noticed the owner had 2 new tires put on the car. But, whoever the idiots were who installed the new tires - they put one new tire on the driver's side front & the other was passenger side rear. So, the 2 older tires (which have about 4/32 tread left) were on the opposite corners. Wtf?

I told the guy before I take her out on the highway we need to get them properly set in the rear. Luckily there was a tire shop down the road and they didn't charge for it. You would think a shop would know how to install new tires. Guess not. I'll be getting the older tires replaced next week.
