    275/40/17's on the stock wheels.

    Any wider, and you will start loosing traction patch.

    Sure has.

    I went with 17's all the way around though.
    There is a thread with ALL kinds of pics of aftermarket wheels in the wheel and tire section.

    My vette has 275/40/18s on the back, 245/45/17s on the front. I actually want to narrow up the front tires, and don't understand why the WS6 had such wide fronts. The bad part is that there is no rotation b/c they are directional. Only option is to buy tires as they wear.
