Exclamation AWD Vehicle Owners Beware

Four for One. Some all-wheel-drive vehicles require that all four tires be replaced even if one is damaged.
The problem is that if you add a new tire into a set of half worn tires, the small difference in tire diameters can cause damage to the AWD system.
Replacing all four tires can be costly, especially with preformance tires. But it might be more costly down the road if the AWD system is damaged.

I did not know this. Since my Expy has an AWD setting, I will keep this in mind when it comes time to replace the skins....

See i was told when i had bought my blazer that i couldnt put diff size tires on the front and back because it would mess up my truck.

And i looked, And behold a pale horse, And he who sat upon him was death.

And power was given unto him over the fourth part of the earth


To kill with the sword, and the hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
