Has anyone gotten new wheels and not gone wider in the rear? Satisfied/regrets?
After doing a little research I'm starting to think I'd like to maintain a square setup and not go any wider in the front from the stock 8.5". That would maintain the same handling characteristics, I could use my current tires since they're not worn out, and I wouldn't increase rolling resistance in the back since I do a lot of commuting. Also the regular width tires would be cheaper to replace long term.
I also commute and use my car as a daily driver. I just blew out a tire and decided to go wider in the rear.
255 front and 275 rear.
So far I have noticed little to no wheel spin when I smash it, more traction especially with the all seasons (general g-max as-03's) out back in this cold weather. Cornering is about the same other then when I mash it, it will sometimes throw the end out which I like anyways. Unfortunately, Gas mileage on the computer has gone down from 18.4 average to 18.2 with 3.73 gears after two weeks. (500 miles?)
