    Lots of grip with those azenis in the summer, they won't be confidence inspiring in any sort of bad weather though

    You just have to be careful on tire diameter difference. too much difference will throw your ABS and Traction control out of wack.

    ^^ This. I was worried about my track setup as the front and rear tires were just a bit different in diameter. Ended up not having a problem, but I am not sure what the threshold is before it will trip an ABS/TCS fault code.

    ^^If you don't mind me asking what is your wheel set up, and I don't have the rims and tires yet I was just checking if anyone had any thing like this. I was thinking about doing 20's in the back and 18's in the front but as I looked into it I noticed I would have hardly no rubber in the back for a good jump start when I want to race some people, so I figured maybe an 18/17 set up would be better.

    18/17 set up wouldnt be bad, why dont you just go with 18 on all fours?

    At first I was gonna do the 18's on all fours but ask I thought about it, I like the old look of American muscle and the cars we have I would have to do 18/17 reason why I is being that I like that look I don't like the look of a whole bunch of tire and hardly no rim so this set up will be the best of both worlds. Has anyone had experience with the tires I said in the first post?
