Steering and majority of braking done with front wheels

Cheers

ok a different spin on this subject.
more people lose a car due to under steer when the back slides out than over steer when the front slides out.you didnt mention if your 4by is constant 4wd or not .if its constant prpobly the front if its not i would put them on the back.
cheers.

Understeer:::The condition that exists during cornering when the front of a vehicle tends to skid before the rear....

You got your steers mixed up.

Sorry Guys. Tyres going on are for Beach/ Bush only. They are Cooper 255/70 16's. When we get back on the Black Top I will revert back to the 245's that are on the Jack. now. I will also be towing a CT but not for long stretches (at the moment).

Nobby,

If only for the bush then good tyres on the back.

Id still sit with the good ones on the front, especially with winter coming up. Hit even a small patch of mud with worn tyres for steering and youll be regretting putting the best ones on the back.

I also found hitting a decent puddle with the worn down treads caused some cruel aquaplaning to the extent of almost being thrown off the tracks. I got some tyres with more tread up front, and i got back steering in slosh, improved braking and had no violent aquaplaning.
