Question on staggered wheel sizes

396 Views 1 Reply 1 Participant Last post by  jkbrauch
Why is it that some high end car companys(porsche,ferrari,lamborghini) have very different wheel and tire sizes front to back. On this board the general concensus seems to be go as wide in front as possible. If anybody could enlighten me on this subject thanks?

Les - It's all a question of balance. I think you'll see most rear and mid-engine exotics have bigger rear to front ratios than the Supra (front engine, rear drive). Most people racing Supras put the largest tires and wheels they can on the car because it has the horsepower and suspension to use them. You'll notice people still pretty much conform to the stock rear to front ratios as the stock setup - i.e.- you don't see people racing on 295s front and rear. 275s or 285s in front and 315s in the rear seem to provide a nicely balanced combination for the Mkiv.
