Hey all. I have a celsior with twenty inch rims and slightly different size tyres from the front and rear.
I had 245/30/20 on the rear and recently got the front done with 225/35/20. I am unsure whether to put the 225's on the front or the rear and vice-versa.
Before anyone asks, I gave the rims to a friend who works at a tyre shop and told him to put 245/30's on there, he delivered them to my house with 225/35's on saying they are all the same. So I have not really thought much about it. I do not do any spirited driving in this car what so ever so im not fussed about that.
Wow, remind me never to go to that tyre shop. Yeah, a 245 is just the same as a 225.
The narrower rubber should go on the front of the car. Running narrower rubber on the rear just feels weird and tends to promote tramlining. Up front it will help the car feel a little more nimble, promote turn in etc.
