On one of my cars, 20,000 miles ago, i got 4 new Pirelli P7000 Supersports. it is front wheel drive. after 20,000, the rear tires are good, but the fronts are worn down almost to the wear markers, but still have some good tread.

the alignment on the car is good, and the tires wear evenly from left to right.

i could either swap the front tires with the rear tires, or leave them the way it is untill the fronts are worn out and just buy two new tires. (i know its not safe to have worn out tires, but the rainy season is over, and the tires really stick anyways)

what do you guys think??

Leave the worn tires on the front. When you do buy (2) new tires, put the new tires on the rear (even on a front wheel drive).
