Bought a new bike, and it has 2 different tires - is that normal? It feels kinda unstable when riding on sand, even without brakes applied, so was wondering if that might be the reason.
Most of my bikes have two different tires.
So I'm thinking - if a front tire has somewhat more grip/traction - would that add up to some instability when riding on sandy surfaces ?
versus two equally gripless ones?

do the tires have the same name or not? some tires have different tread patterns, so it looks like your tires are different, but they actualy match
Yep, actually same model. So I guess this is normal :)

yep, its just something some companies do, make tires so you have great acceleration grip in the back, and great grip on the sides of the front for superb steering. ride on, and enjoy your bike! :)
