It makes sense that a bigger contact patch would give you better braking.

Topless has a lot of track experience and has a good handle on what he is talking about. Between him and his brother, they probubly have tried just about every posible setup on a Boxster

Me, all benefits, did not have to upsize the front bar, the 205/255 stock stagger is so heavily biased towards understeer that moving to 225 in the front just helps dial some of that out, but still leaves a slight understeer bias.

Sounds good. I got a beefier non-S M030 sway bar in back already, still not oversteering, so hoping 225 fronts dial it just right without needing a thicker front bar.
