Default Question on mis-matched tires

I bought some used rims and tires from the forums and one of the tires is a different brand. I will be getting 4 new tires in a few weeks, but in the meantime i need to run mis-matched. When I mount them on the car, where should I put the odd tire? Front or back? Does it matter?

i dont think it would matter too much. if there the same speed rating and stuff it should be fine...the only time i would worry is if you have max performance summer tires and something like blizzacks in the back and you go around a turn going faster than you should. and also if the tread as the same wear as the other tires.

I think the issue with different tires is that one will slip before the others, so if you're driving on rough or slippery surfaces your differential will have to work a lot harder. If you take it easy and stay on pavement I don't think it will be too much of a problem. Just make sure all the tires are within a 1/4" circumference of each other.
