    I have always kept the same tires on the front as the rear, I noticed some of you are putting
    Nittos, MT's, Cooper, etc tires on the rear. Are you keeping the stock Pirelli P Zero's on the front?

    If so, how does it drive? Does it affect the feel much or any weird steering feel?

    Thanks

    Rears only work fine, its not optimal, but IMO you only need DR's on the front if your racing around a track...I like having more wet traction on the front for a DD...

    I run the MickeyThompson drag radials on the rear in the 305s... And stock Pirellis on the front.. Cant even tell a difference. Was doing 85 on the interstate last night, drives perfect.

    Michelin Pilot Super Sports on the back, 295/35/20's and I personally feel no difference at all expect less wheel spin on hard acceleration. I am not a trained race car driver but I play one on TV.

    My local tire shops are telling or giving me some line of BS about the side wall on the MT can blow out since they dont fit the tire rim correctly?? IS there any truth to that theory. What is the exact measurements are you running? I have always had luck with MT on my other rides.

    You can run it but it is not an optimal fitment. Your tire will not have a proper contact patch. A ten inch wheel let's the tire fit better and meet the road more evenly.

    Just a note some tire places will not mount a 10.5 wide tire on a 9.5 rim they say its a liability thing
