Different tyre brands

Sun May 26, 2019 8:35 am

I need two new rear tyres, I have Bridgestone on the front and was thinking of putting pirelli p-zero on the rears.

Both treads will be 1-2 mm different from front to rears, have 6-7mm on fronts.

Would this cause any diff issues since I've just replaced mine I don't want to fork out again.

I’m no expert but I’m sure they should all be the same brand

Ideally they should be the same brand. Getting two different brands to wear evenly and keep to 1.5mm difference could be a challenge too far. The way the tyres behave when rolling will be different too. You might be absolutely fine, but with these damned transmissions it’s like a game of Russian Roulette!

Looked at this extensively, and ended up putting all the same on mine...drives much better as a result
