Planning to buy the BF Goodrich KDW in 285/40/YR-17 as they are the biggest tire size I can get for 17 inch wheels in BF Goodrich. Are they as good as the KD's? or should I buy the 275/40YR17's in KD's instead.
What are my options with 17-10 inch wheels? I basically like the look of broad tires and also want maximum traction as I am having problems putting power down, as the car is too strong coming out of 1st and 2nd it fishtails and really screechs. What tire and size do you recomend? Tirerack will ship them to me!
By the way I currently have Dunlop SP8000. 255/40/ZR17 all round.
The brand/model tire will have more of an effect on traction than the size. The worst tire for traction in one that is over 75% worn. Tires with this many heat cycles tend to get very hard and loss a lot of their grip. The KD's are your best bet even though they get pretty noisey as they get worn out. I would recommend a 275/40R17 G-Force KD. This assumes you have at least a 40mm offset. If you also need a recommendation for the front, let me know what size and offset wheel you have on the front.
Thanks for your advice! Im sorry to say I have no clue about offset but the 255s in front fit quite easily and have no clearance problem. The rear is fine with enough gap using 255s. Will there be a problem with using 275s at the rear?
How do I check the offset?
Also will Summer heat on tires damage them and make them lose their performance?

He, I have an issue with my supra mk4, The steering doesn’t response in same time, i mean when i turn right or left I don’t get response immediately. I have to take half turn then the car will turn. What can i do instead of buying a new steering box!
The instant I fix something, something else breaks - Why does this happen to me everytime?! Had no problems with my car in a long time, then the master cylinder just instantly dies outta nowhere. No biggy, fixed that... now my climate control died lol. All the climate control buttons are dead...

I'm having trouble removing the banjo bolt on the fuel pump assembly. Tried everything I could think of besides an impact wrench. Wanted to ask some folks if that was a good idea or not? I'd really appreciate any insight you can offer.
