Tire sets, buying multiples

Anyone else buy their road tires in multiples of 3? I have purchased all my new sets of tires for the past few years 3 at a time instead of pairs. I find that i get roughly twice the life in the front tire compared to the rear, so when the rear is worn out, i simply put on the third. Just wondering if anyone else does this…

Ditto, 3x here. Sometimes I swap the front to the back, and new on the front. Others I just swap out the rear. Generally, I like having the front as the “freshest” one with the most traction, from a cornering perspective at least.


Never thoght about this before, but good tip to have learned.

I swap the tires. This fits quite well with the change of sealant.
