Wheels, Tyres, Suspension, Chassis, Faults and Fixes
The general advice is to fit new tyres to the REAR, especially on a front-wheel drive car (which the DS essentially is most of the time).

Only did this after getting a screw in the rear and having to replace it. The rears had 6mm and the front around 4.5mm, so did a swap around and put new on the front, scrapped damaged tyre and kept on of the original front as a spare in the garage. I reckon I would have got at least 30K out of them before they need to be looked at,
Paid £100 per tyre on fleabay and £15.00 fitting at a local garage.
It seems wrong, but all the advice points that way.

The advice is that way to put most grip to the rear to prevent oversteer situations (rear loses grip) unless you like a bit if opposite lick now and again. Understeer (loss of front grip) is generally thought safer....
