    I wouldn't go much larger than stock width up front. You could probably do a 285 without issue. I did a test fit on a 305 and it was rubbing

    Really that's what I wanted to do is keep eveything balanced since it's all around 275 40 20 I thought if I do 305 35 20 in rear I should do the same to the front to keep the " balance " as well I look at it like the car strong suit is going straight so if im going to tune the beast I'm going to start on its short comings and improve handling and grip.... So what's the best stance and anyone have any luck finding places in Toronto that carry Preformance tires like these.

    Those are custom ordered Triumph Performance Wheels.
    The rears are built to 25mm backset, in the future a bit narrower tire will work, but that particular tire won't take all 25 mm, or it rubs, so a small spacer is in place.

    ^ like you said above, that stance/stagger looks sinister. May be cool to get it like 1/2" lower or so, that may be about perfect.
