Hey guys im getting new wheels soon, I do drive/drift a mustang -.- I was just wondering Should i get 17's or 18's im basically worried about my front being able to maintain traction on the lower profile tires. The fronts will be about 225/55 or 50 cant remember exactly.

The reason i ask this is because in the past i have mounted low profile tires in the front on my 16's and the result is terrible understeer. Thanks!

I'd try a 15/19 stagger, should help get rid of your issues.

what kind of mustang do you drive? do you know who geoff is? is this a serious question or are you trying to show everyone how cool you are buy saying you are going to buy 17 or 18 inch wheels and tires? what do you consider to be low profile? have you ever kissed a girl and liked it? what is the meaning of life? why are boobs good? do you like to party? what's up with airplane food? have you ever drifted in third gear? do you consider yourself to be a good driver? how many DUI's have you been accused of? Convicted of? Are there any good drivers in on your forum? Why did you sign up for this forum? Do you have an thoughts on the price of eggs in China? Are you going to try to answer all these questions to try to be funny? Do you look like this guy?
