The difference in circumference is 5% , your tires should't be more than 3% different. It's on the back, so no worries for now. I wouldn't rotate it to the front. How are the rest of the tires? If close to swapping, you can wait. But if the others are newer, I would get a replacement tire to match brand, type and size.


My 2 front tires got worn out because of a needed wheel alignment so i will try to purchase 2 front asap, but unfortunately i have a budget that is why i wanted to know if it was safe to keep that back tire as is?

I was hoping you would replacing the odd ball tire sooner than later. Ask the tire shop what they recommend. It would bother me having mismatch sizes. Brands and tread, not so much.


Darn! thanks for your response
