In Reply to: Odometer uses front or rear wheels? posted by Becht on January 04, 2000 at 09:55:24:

so yes, on the bimmers, it uses the rear wheels, but on a FWD car, it would use the front wheels.

: I would like to know if the odometer is measuring the
: travel of the front or rear wheels.

: If it is the front, then I would assume it is fine to
: change the tires in the rear and not have a mileage
: inaccuracy. I would like to put 235/40s in back
: instead of the 245/40s.

: Is this why the snow tire recommendation is for 225/45
: all around, since the front tires need to be 225/45-17"
: on 98 M3s?
