Default newb questions: tire wear

On the WRX do the fronts or back tires wear faster?

Fronts. Assuming good tire pressure and alignment of course.

+1 for fronts

The weight distribution for our Subies are bias towards the front. This will lead to an increase of load on the front tires, assuming tire pressures and alignment are in proper settings.

the fronts, no doubt

i have found, with both of my wrx's, that rotating tires every oil change is a GREAT thing to do to extend their life
