Tire Positions?

Hey guys, wondering if you could help with this:

I bought 4 GTS tires to put on my GT...2 are a little more worn than the other 2...The the 2 more worn ones go in the front? Also, I don't have to have it professionally mounted/balanced, etc, right? I can do it myself? Thanks.

If you are just putting them on your car now, put the more worn tires on the back. The front-wheel-drive car will wear out the other before the back ones. rotate every 10000 km.

So you suggest I do it myself, right? Shouldn't be mounted and balanced professionally?

It isnt hard at all, just like replacing a spare. You should do it yourself, only go to a pro to get it alligned if the allignment is messed up.
