Hi guys. I've done my searching and am really surprised I haven't found a thread about this. Maybe I'm missing something.
Currently I'm driving my 03 coupe lowered on RSR Ti2000 350z race springs with the OEM 18" rims.
The tires are stretched:
Front: 245/40 R18
Rear: 275/35 R18
To make things simple and refresh some memories stock tire sizes are:
Front: 225/45 R18
Rear: 245/45 R18
Money is tight and I want to return to the OEM tire sizes. I need front tires badly, but my existing rears still have some life on them.
I'm wondering if it would be possible to stretch an OEM REAR sized tire (245/45) onto the front rim, then rotate them onto the rear once my existing rears go.
I believe that I read that a speedometer difference of 3% will mess with the VDC and according to the link above the difference would be 2.66%. I'm thinking that's too close because actual measurements differ by manufacturer, but I wanted your guys' opinion.
If not, will an OEM FRONT on my front rim cause my VDC to act up when used with my existing rear tires (275/35)? I think this is a silly question but I'm asking anyway!
I've thought about the tires being taller, but the biggest tire height gain is 14mm in the rear and I've got the room.
Front to OEM:
Rear to OEM:
Any questions, comments, and concerns are appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
