    Stock rim and drag tire size question

    I have stock 16x8 rims on my firebird. The front tire is a 235-55-16 and the rears I want to run is a MT Et Street Radial - 255-50-16. Has anyone ran the MT 255-50-16 on the stock rims with any fitting problems? Will this affect my abs? I do have a hypertech to re-program for the tire size.

    Or would the 235-55-16 be better on the front since they have a overall dia of 26.1 and the MT 255-50-16 has a overall dia of 26.00

    do this, so as not to cause ABS issues. and have a slightly skinnier front tire for less rolling resistance.
