I feel like this AI has passed the Turing Test just by being obnoxiously and stubbornly wrong. It's like arguing with a real live idiot.

Both stations (transmitting in Wisconsin (I think) and receiving in Florida) were using some pretty specialized antennas though.

I never do a fiver on that cause its rim is plain steel and the rest are alloy. I just have them put the best of the old tires on the spare every second tire change.Industry-standard is new on the rear because most drivers aren't skilled enough to handle a rear slide. Frankly, my opinion is that if the remaining two are worn enough that loss of traction with them is a big concern then you should be replacing all 4 and not setting up the vehicle to be unstable on just one end, but that's me.
I rotate at about half the estimated life. Front to back, back to front same sides. That's not wrong is it? It seems to work. My fronts on all car models wear out fastest. At about twice the rears, doesn't matter front or RWD. Seems to work cause at end of life the tires are about even.
When I had that broken tire belt last Christmas on my BMW's cooper I replaced both rears, but I said I wanted the new rears moved to the front and the older fronts moved to the back and the dude at the tire shop freaked out. Oh, you can't do that.
We'll I'll tell you, I'd rather have a loose rear end that I can control in a slide, than a front end that 'pushes' out in a corner and you have no control over that slide and end up in a ditch. What's the deal with promoting keeping worn tires on the front and new tires on the back?
