Put the new tires on the rear. Less weight back there, more likely to slide around with worn tires on rear.

I was goign to say the same thing.......IF your rotating on decent intervals they all should be worn the same getting you more miles out of a complete set and needing 4 instead of 2 each time.Blackhemiquad said:Sorry I meant to add that I rotate my tires to even the wear so that I can change all 4 tires when the time comes.
What's funny about that is that when you hydroplane, you definitely want your traction in the front. In the rain or snow, new tires in the front will give you more control over your vehicle. You can control the spinning of the rear with your right foot, but if your vehicle isn't accepting your steering input, then see you at the body shop.reindeerman said:Where do I install new tires if I only buy two?
If you're replacing only two tires, be sure to have them installed on your vehicle's rear axle. New tires will provide better grip than your half-worn tires and when they are installed on the rear that helps reduce the potential for your vehicle to fishtail or hydroplane in wet conditions
