AWD Drivetrain and Tire Wear

Post by Scotty17 » Fri May 04, 2018 7:59 am

2005 AWD SEL

I have noticed that by front tires have more tread wear then my rear tires, the wear is not uneven
just noticeably more, is this normal for a AWD drivetrain.

I have been doing some research and finding that most AWD drivetrains operate in FWD mode until
AWD is needed, is this the case with the Freestyle.

Also is the more tire wear in front cause due to the weight of the front end ?

Thanks Again
