I am gonna purchase Kuhmo MX's pretty soon and was wondering which size to get for the front.
255x40 or 275x40. I dont want the donut look and think that maybe the 275x40 will look bad. I also would rather have a little bit of understeer since now I have major oversteer. A smaller 255x40 might push a little more which to me is good. Will either of these sizes affect Active handling.

What are your suggestions.

Thanks for the help.

I would go with the 275's if I were you. I have 275 Nitto 555's on the front of mine and they look perfect on the stock size front wheel. :thumb:

If you are concerned with oversteer, you could go with a stickier compound tire in the rear. I have the standard Nitto 555's in front and the 555RII's in the rear for this reason.

I think the stock wheels like kinda donutish. Might just be the style of the goodyears. I like the porsche look with the tire rolling off the lip of the rim with a very low profile. I think with a 255x40 I might achieve this. Dunno, where do I get the Nitto 555?
