    Thanks for the backup, bigrondownhiller. As I said, the rear tires are nearly 3/4" taller than the fronts.

    bryceslu, now who gets the , sucka!

    So anyway. Have you had a problem with the ABS kicking in under normal brakeing? I'd like to get 18's front and 19's rear but keep the profile the same, hence the back tires will wind up ~1" taller. I'm just wondering if it'll cause a problem with the ABS like I've heard. Thanks!

    Sorry for the delay in responding....

    I was on the fence about 18" or 19"...I know most dont think that 19's should be on an Fbody, but to each their own. After they put the wheels on, they parked my car in front of the store. It was a Sat n there were a lot of people there getting work done. Had a lot of looky loos (some ricers) and got props from many on the set up. Even the guys at the shop thought it was nicely done.

    I agree, it would look better lowered a bit but i blew most of my wad on the new shoes. I have the rest saved up for a couple tattoos.

    Havent noticed a difference in braking at all...its funny but a new set of wheels makes you want to go faster...I've had to do some quick stops and havent noticed a change.

    Performance and appearance mods are all about individual style & taste; it's what makes our cars unique to each of us. I can respect the opinions and likes of those that differ from my own. To those that like my set up... ...to those that don't... ...JK

    BTW, the rears are 3/4" taller.

    One thing I don't like about not having the same size tire front and rear is you can't rotate the tires to get them to wear evenly. You can do it L to R, that does help some, but the non-driven wheels usually get real choppy after 15k or so. The look isn't bad, just the wear pattern on the tires get bad. And these tires are not $200 per set!
