I have driven my car since ~84,000 miles. As stated below, I have replaced the front passenger tire for slow leaks twice. The other tires haven't been replaced since I started driving it.
I am looking forward to replace all four tires. However, a friend made a suggestion that I replace only my two front tires since I have a front-wheel drive car. I am able to replace all four tires, but I am interested in the benefit of doing so vs. replacing only my front two tires.
What benefits will I gain through replacing all four tires vs. replacing my front two tires? Is it worthwhile (cost vs. benefit) to replace my two back tires if I only replace my front two tires on my front-wheel drive car?
