I'm not sure I want to. Running wider tires in the front reduces the built-in understeer (as opposed to more deadly oversteer) and also makes it even worse on the freeway where there's ruts in the road (it's bad now).Yup. Run out the ones you have then get proper sized one later
I am well aware of thisIt's a street car that I take on the track, not a track car that I take on the street.
I just know that guys who track their Vipers a lot run a 285 instead of a 275 as it reduces understeer, however on the street it has drawbacks, especially in terms of ruts.I am well aware of this
but the more you are familiar with the car, the less you will ever need to rely on built-in understeer to get you out of a situation. Your description for why the car has smaller front tires looks more like you're reading from a marketing or legal brochure.. it just looks like you're repeating what others, who also have never had the chance to really push their cars in a safe environment so they can learn how to control it, have told you.
Don't take that as me pushing you to do something to lessen any understeer. I wouldn't recommend that you do so until you are confident with the car at high speed and in extreme situations... something you can only really learn in a car control clinic and at the track. But I do believe that once you gain that confidence you'll start to worry less about thinking that oversteer is the way to death with the car
That's a cool site, but is there any way to convert it into using Imperial tire sizes? Offroad tires aren't generally measured in metric....
