Mix n matching rubber
Dumb question time.
I want to get another set of rims n wheels for when I take the car down to the track for quarter mile fun. The evil half doesn't appreciate her tyres being prematurely worn out on our only everyday car.
I have 17's with 235/45 series rubber all round.
Do I need to replace the rears with 17" rims or can I go a different smaller size eg 16's and balance it out with bigger rubber ? Are there any side affects to doing this ?
If I can find some cheap 17's I'll just buy them but i think the cost of the rubber may be the bigger issue. After all they're just gonna get fried.
