Handling differences

I'm think for Christmas I'm going to buy myself new tires and wheels and wondering about the handling aspect of it. If I put 315's on the rear and 245's on the front, will I see any differences from having 245's on the front and 275's on the back? Thanks guys.

You will have more rear grip, which will actually induce understeer


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Heavier wheels/tires hurt your acceleration, braking, and handling unless you actually need something that big to handle the power you have. Big tires look cool but may offer you no improvement and lots of trade=offs.

Pete is absolutely correct. Problem is, even a bone stock 5.0 needs 315s on the back to hook at all. Wish I could run DRs all the time, but I put on about 25k per year.

Be prepared for a massive amount of understeer with 315s.
