Our 95 D90 was side swiped and the BF Goodrich TA front tire destroyed. The set is 8 years old and has 40,000 miles on them. While in the past have been told to never replace just one, now I am hearing replace all four! They have said "For safety reasons the traction balance front to back and side to side is best preserved by all four."
1 -Replace 2 or 4.
2 - If 4, since the car is only driven on road, never off, what about Michelin LTX MS2 tires for quiet comfort better traction on road? Tire rack seems to love them and their predecessor the MS.
3 - Any suggestions on how to get insurance company to go along with four?
