For my Ford Focus, 60 mile each way daily motorway commute.
Fronts are Michelin HP, cracking long life tyre, 5mm and 3mm.
Rears are Pirelli’s, but now on the legal limit.
Considering buying 2 Michelin’s for the front, and put both the 5mm and 3mm tyres onto the rear.
How would having good tread at the front and getting low tread on the read affect the handling, for a sensible motorway commute?
Another option would be 3 new tyres for close to £300…..!!!!
When the rear 3mm gets close to legal limit I would rotate fronts to rear, and buy a new pair for the front.
By the way, the 5mm Michelin was fitted last January, and done around 30K miles, so pretty happy with the tyre, just not the £90 price tag!!
