    tire size on stock rims

    i have the stock 1998 ws6 rims. getting ready to order some goodyear f1 gsd3 tires for them. on the back i want to do the 285/40zr17 which i hear fit fine. on the front though i want to do the 255/40zr17.

    they are .6" diameter less than the stock goodyear f1gs tires so i wanted to see if anyone had any pics or input for this tire....... id really rather get a 265/40 for the front but they dont make it on this tire and the 275/40 is so close to the 285/40 that i dont think it would be worth it. i want the staggered look and i know i wont be able to rotate them so it has to be worth it.

    IMO the staggered look should stay with the 2nd gen T/A's and older. The 3rd and 4th gen look too "redneck" with a staggered big/small tire combo.
    Stick with stock up front and go one size bigger 285/40 for width/traction but going much shorter and narrower will look dumb and mess up the handling characteristics of the car.

    so i guess ill just stick with the 275/40 front and 285/40 rear then.... should look better than stock. those gsd3 tires have an awesome pattern
