Two different sizes on front
by Melissa Taylor
I have a 235 15 and a 215 15 on the front of my truck is this ok?
About mixing tire sizes:
This is definitely a bad practice and is never recommended by anyone with experience in tires. TG
Maybe you've been lucky and have not experienced any serious difficulty in handling but you still may be causing unnecessary mechanical wear and tear which could end up costing you dearly.
If this is something that has been taking place for just a short time and driving distance (say less than 100 miles) the damage might be minimal.
I would urge you to install the same size on both wheels and have someone check your front-end for any problems that could have resulted if the distance you have driven is much more than an absolute minimum.
If the tire you replace is still in excellent condition, you might want to use it as a spare tire, just for emergency use so as to squeeze the most benefit out of it. Because it is an odd size make certain that you use it only for emergencies.
