Putting on 18s with 2 different tire brands?
 
Here's my question.

2 of the rims are mounted with Neo Jen Nitro tires (235/ 40ZR18 95W)

And the other 2 are mounted with Fuzion ZRI (235/ 40R18 91W)

All 4 tires are brand new. Which of the 2 brands should go to front?

Also there shouldn't be an issue having 2 different brands mounted on the car?

Car is a 2007 acura TL base.

Thanks

the issue is that you will have different levels of traction which can make the car more uncontrollable depending on condition and how you drive

IMO it doesn't matter what wheels go f/r since you're going to be rotating them at some point anyways.

All done. Took it up to hwy speeds and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. Maybe a bit more firmer ride due to lower profile but the wheels/tires drove great.
