tires

Dear All,

is it ok to replace only the two right tires on a car?

MY OEM tires are Michelin Latitude tour HP, 255/55R18 RSC.

I am thinking about replacing the right tires with

Bridgestone - Dueler H/L 400

thanks in advance,
yesno

Bad idea, never ever mix different brand tires especially on front and rear axles, if you need to just replace the passenger side front and rear, you probably have an alignment issue.

No, it is NOT OK

Stick with the Lattitudes, superior tires. Get an alignment done, read here in 'best alignment specs', dont just assume the "BMW Numbers" are OK

How did OEM tires worked out for you in terms of ride comfort? R they RFT's and how many miles did they last before they worn out?
I'm thinking of moving to 20' Mich tour HP's non RFT's as Conti DWS's didn't work out bcz of pulling and vibration.
