yes of course.  and the 2 wheel / 4 wheel replacement thing is spurious.  if any 2 wheel car is properly
rotated, all 4 tires should wear out at about the same time anyway.  there is the exception of the whole
right/left side crowned road thing, i.e. since most people don't unmount tires to rotate side to side,
with radials you are generally forced to go front back on each side only, and hence the 'curbside' (left
or right depending on your side of the pond) tires wear differently than the 'roadside' tires.
