I have a 2009 wrx and I was wondering if anyone is running 245's on all 4 wheels.

I'm looking for a new wheel setup and I know I want 245/35/r18 on the rear but I don't know if a tire that wide on the front will give a funny feeling when steering.

Any ideas?

Well running a staggered setup isn't a bad thing, I'd just prefer to have 245s all the way around.

If people are having issues going that wide on the front tires, I would like to know.

Yes. Plenty of people have tires that are 245mm wide. All I wanted to know was if there were any disadvantages in buying a tire that wide.

Yes. He's saying don't be buying different sized tires. You want a 245/35 in the rear, yet have no clue what size to run in the front and if there will be any is disadvantages?

Someone as clueless as you should probably stick to stock setups.

Buy 4 tires. Of the same size. For all 4 tires.

Whatever size will properly fit on the wheel.

i know d0000ds that run 285's and 295's on their subarus for racing and 265's on the street

i think 265's are excessive unless you are over 500whp...but they ARE over 500whp...so....

don't try doing any 'staggered' setup cuz you will destroy something daddy will have to pay for
