I am sorry if this question has been asked before I tried searching. My 05 civic which is a fwd has one tire on the back with very low tread unlike the other tires mounted on the car, is this going to damage any of the drive components or suspension components in the vehicle on the long run?
Likewise, in a rear wheel drivecar, is having two different treads on the font wheels going to cause extra stress on any components like the differential?
My understanding is that the non-driving wheels are just there for the ride and matching tread depth is not critical as driving wheels. Is that true?
