New tires should always go on the rear if buying only two tires.

My last car needed ultra hight performance tires.. So it went through a lot of tires.. I got used to replacing one pair each fall. By then the fronts were pretty worn, and the rear were still good (since they were the new ones last year.
So the rear to the front, and new ones on the back.

And for front wheel drive the fronts wear faster anyway.. New tires wear faster than old.. by putting the new ones on the back, the get to age some, so they last a little longer..
After a year, they are good to put on the front. (and new ones on the back again.)

Folks who want to argue with all the testing done and want the opposite I suppose they just have to go their own way....
