Should've purchased 4. Either way, excellent choice. Those are great tires.

Assuming he already has Super Sports on his car, what's wrong with replacing them an axle at a time? I could probably go through 2-3 rear sets before changing my fronts...

In fact, as soon as winter is over I intend to replace my rear super sports as well.

My front tires are not the super sports, they're falkens and they're brand new, probably 300 miles on them.

My rears were bald, so i decide to purchase these, waiting for the weather to get better and ill put them on.

I agree with you, my front tires are brand new, and although they arn't super sports, it would be a waste of money to change so soon, once they're bald, ill pick up 2 more
