    Replace both tires at once or 2 fronts to 1 rear?

    I am around 13K miles on my PR4s on my 05 FZ6. Rear looks pretty solid based on wear indicators but I can probably could get a few more K from the front but I think my front bearing needs replacement (started hearing squeak sounds) so debating just doing the front (PR4s are out of stock everywhere so debating PR2 or PR5) or should I just replace them as a set?

    They don't have to be replaced as a set. The argument for doing them separately is that it's a little easier on the wallet.

    I typically go through two rears for one front, so yeah, check those bearings.
