On a 98 C70. Right now the car has bigger tires than recommended. There is
interference on the front end (brushing against the spring and inner wells),
and it is time to replace the rear, so I'm thinking of:
Moving the good-condition front tires to the rear (225/50/17) and
Getting the sticker-recommended size for the front (205/45/17).
The alternative is the get the correct size tire all-around...but it is a
shame since the two fronts are nearly new. I appreciate any input, thank
aside from any handling/steering issues that might arise, the only real
problem I can think of is if your car has anti-lock brakes... if so, having
different size tires might trick the system into thinking there is a loss of
traction occuring when you brake, since the wheels will turn at a slightly
different rate due to the size difference....
