Just drove my car for three days with a different set of rims and rubber, while they had mine to get through a test.

I was shocked at the difference having wider wheels on the front made. Both sets are 17"s
It was like I was fighting with the car all the time to make it go where I wanted and not where it felt like going.

Road noise was a lot louder, probably a combination of size (width) and the rubber fitted, which was a good make, but so different to my SP9000.

I reckon the best bet would be to have the wide jobs on the back for that extra little bit of traction and narrow on the front for lighter steering and a bit less bicep development.

Shame when you are in the market for wheels that you cant try all the combinations for looks and performance, turns it into a bit of a lottery really.
