Question about 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe
I need to replace the two front tires i called to get pricing at a couple of local shops, one place told me i needed to replace all 4 because its all wheel drive and it will mess up the transmission if i don', the other shop told me i didn't as long as the tread on the other two tires wasn't bad. any info is greatly appreciated.
The engineers say all four tires should be same diameter so the transfer case takes no damage. THE question is how much can that vary...like partially worn tires mixed with new. Generally if your old pair of tires have half tread or more then match with the same type. If your old pair have less than half tread buy 4 tires of your choice

The second shop is right, assuming the rear tires are actually good still. There is no way what so ever that only replacing two tires would damage your transmission.
