I have a question.... why put larger with rims on the front of the car (9") and still run a 235 - 1 size larger than stock? (same goes for the rear).

Other than looks... it certainly looks nice... the front especially nice fitment on the 359.

Is there a performance benefit? I guess it increases the front track a bit.

I want more RUBBER on the front of the car - that demands a 9" rim - but I want a 255 or 265 on the front like Dinan has managed to do.

QUESTION: Has anybody tried to put a 255 on the 9" 359 and put that on the front of the car and see if it would fit? I believe you would need the M3 wishbones and camber plates for the added camber to do this.
