Usually the new tires always go on the back, not the front. Something to do with handling thru turns...(according the poster on the wall last time I got new tires).
I am not to high on just replacing 2 tires at a time, especially with ESC.
I am guessing there isn't much life in the old tires moved to the front...which makes alot of noise.
You might be right, but I also read to have the same type of Tires on the Sonata. I will say it sounds like whatever the Tire shop did messed it up,
and also the Sonata has a super sensitive front end and prone to problems. I wonder if they even balanced the Tires?
|While at Firestone for 30K Service, they had a pamphlet explaing that if only buying 2 new tires for a FWD vehicle, that the new tires should be mounted on rear to avoid oversteering and loss of control. Pamphlet said that mounting new tires on front can cause the older tires in back to loose traction much easier and spin out, while mounting them on the back allows them to maintain traction better thus reducing oversteer. Made sense to me, however I always purchase 4 new tires when old ones need replacing to avoid this exact problem.|
