I see,
here's this on the Hankook: http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Ha...2-evo-k110.htm

Dunlop: http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Du...rt-Maxx-GT.htm


Say I get a high dry-grip tyre, will I be able to slide the car? or I'm going to push harder on the car to perform it?

(I know it's non-turbo Impreza, but it's powerful enough to do that -2.0R-
when I want to enter a left turn, 40Km/s, I shift down to 1st gear and Hit the paddle with a quick firm left turn with the wheel, and keep it sliding until lining-up with the runway..) (I think you will say, don't do that with the 1st gear or you're not a STi car, I know.. )

my car can go into corners over 150Km/h and have tried that, Way to go Subaru
(TEIN Suspensions and the whole kit, hardest settings)

I bought Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 225/40R18 x 4

I kept on my old Rear ones (Firestone TZ100)..

the back of the car won't slide when I want her to (oversteering) (but no understeer either )

is this because the tyres are new? or the size of the tyre? or of the grip of it?
I had 235/40 on the back before which would let me oversteer easily...(used over 2 years, but still got lots of life in it) and the front print of the tyre wasn't the same as the rear ones -TZ100- )

is it a problem to have the rear tyres 235 when the front is 225?
what do you think?

i think you are quite daft and you WILL destroy the center differential, no doubt about it, in short order by running different sized tires

no doubt

You bought an AWD car. That means same tires all around.
