I remember there being someone with that very set up on here, but I can't remember who it was.

I personally think it should be the opposite, have the smaller rims with bigger meats in the rear.

Great set up! What size wheel/tire is that in the back? I currently have 18x9 (255/40/18 ) up front and 18x10 (285/35/18 ) in the back, but would really like something a bit meatier for the back, also considering switching to 17's for the front!
