Out of all the winter tyre threads I thought I'd post on this one.

I've just bought myself two rear tyres (Bridgestone Blizzaks) and I am actively looking for two fronts.

Meanwhile I am aware of the advice not to mix winter/summer and I understand the reasoning but I am tempted to fit the rears when they arrive. Anyone done this or peoples general thoughts would be appreciated.

i wouldn't do it personally.

see here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdtAm7RsTmE

see 1 min 30secs in............. it was the other way round though - winters on the front & not the rear.

Wouldn't want to mix them here either. I would get another set of winters for the front, don't need to be Bridgestones if you want to save a bit of cash.

It wasn't so much cash as availabilty. Just got a return call from etyres and they have the bridgestones but only in the 225 size which is the ones I need. 240 each which is a problem. I just paid 245 for the 2 x 255 rears.

I will get the fronts but I am still tempted to fit the rears. At least I know I got a good price on the rears. My local tyre place hasn't been answering the phone all day so I'm assuming he's had a snow day.
