Re: Very Important info to remember about New tires....
I worked as a mechanic for one Police agency and saw a video that the Police, (an academy and testing agency), did with rear drive Crown Vics and Caprices. They didn't use worn tires but set the car up to blow a tire out on the front and rear. They ran the cars at a high rate of speed and blew one or the other out to see the reaction. The car was easier to bring to a controlled stop and handled better with a front tire blown out then a rear. When the popped a rear, they would have run off the road had they not been on a track.
