which position should I put with used and new winter tires? Answered

I've bought 2 new snow tires, the same model than the old ones. Should I put them both in front or in the back? I've got a Nissan Sentra 2004 (so, FF)

If it's a front-wheel-drive car, my unsupported guess would be best tires in front -- for both drive and steering traction. But I'm sure you can find officially recommended answers on a site such as Car Talk, or one of the other automotive sites -- or on the tire manufacturer's site for that matter.

I would do this also.  I believe that that would be backed up by car talk if you were able to get a straight answer out of them guys.

 Yeah thats sounds about right, Good in the front and bad in the back. 
But you should look at the wear marks and see if there to bad to even use
