If you have all-wheel drive – should you replace tires in pairs? All four? Just one?
I have an all-wheel drive truck and was told that all four need to be replaced so I don’t damage the drive train.
Turns out on my particular truck, that’s not true.
The system used on my vehicle uses the traction-control system to control wheel spin and transfer power to the appropriate wheels. And in such a system, mis-matched wheel sizes are not really an issue and will cause no problems for the drive-train.
Furthermore, you have to have a significant tread wear difference to matter anyways even it if did actually matter. I’ve found numbers as large as 70% – at which point you should be thinking about replacing the tires anyways.
