You and Topless both got owned and now you're just posting crap.

wrs986 go with the 235/40/18 front and 265/35/18 rear and you will be very happy.

And I don't mean switching from summer to winter as you tried to squirrelgoat with earlier... b/c uhhh most anyone w/ a buttometer should notice that. I mean, heck even my wife noticed when I replaced RF tires on her car w/ non-RFs.

Anyhow, all other things being equal (brand, model, width, wheel diam, tire wear, etc), if someone switched rears on a vehicle you are to drive from 40 to 35 series 265s or vice versa without telling you which was on, I'll bet you a steak dinner w/ all the trimmings there's absolutely no way YOU could GUESS (because let's be honest that's ALL you would be doing - GUESSING) w/ more than 50% accuracy (with a statistically adaquate/reliable sample size) which was on after driving a kilometer.

I mean sheesh, after all it IS 13 less rotations per kilometer you insisted w/ great precision. That means every 252 feet you'd feel a rear tire rotate one less time than another. Easy peasy lemon squeezy apparently for you...

I guess I stand corrected. My bad.

But that does beg the question with your F1 career in the balance, how do you find time to post w/ commoners like us here on 986forum.

Good luck in Monaco next week!

All I can say is Topless knows what the F he is talking about and has the experience very few here will ever have.
Come out and drive with him and see who owns who

If you don't believe me talk to a few hundred PCA Zone 8 members that know him as well as his knowledge and skill and they will also confirm he knows his stuff.
