Generally vehicles with equal weight front and rear have a fatality occurrence of 50 per million registered. This can be attributed to human error. Consistently vehicle with more than 63 percent weight on the front will have 3 times as many accidents. The difference in weight makes predicting a safe speed harder and recovery from a breakaway of the lighter rear almost impossible. On these vehicles keeping the best tires on the rear will decrease the number of accidents Older Buicks have a weight ratio of 63/37 http://lossofcontrolaccidents.blogspot.com/
