We have a 2002 Trailblazer Rear Wheel Drive (yes, I know, it's an oddball). One of the rear tires had a couple of nails in it, so my son took it to Sams Club where we bought the tires from. They covered it under the road hazard warranty, but didn't have an exact replacement.
So they put on a Goodyear Fortera HL, where the other tire is a Goodrich LongTrail. The tire size is P245/65R17. The difference in tread is 3/32".
I've heard that you shouldn't mix different brands on the same axle, even if they are the same size. Is that true?
Should I go out and find another Goodyear Fortera, or are we okay with this tire combination on the rear axle?
