Cannot find information about this anywhere online!

Thanks in advance.
Because of the wide range, it can not be predicted. That's why the rules say not to do that. The tires should be as close to the same as possible.

Ya' see, in emergency maneuvers, cars tend to rotate around the odd tire - and the more odd the tire is, the stronger that tendency.

Further, the same applies to the front/rear. The more different, the more likely the vehicle will swap ends in emergency situations.

So the ideal set up is to have 4 of the same make and model tire with the same amount of wear.
