I have a 2000 C4 with the standard Carrera Twist 17 7 & 9 wheel set & I am Looking at some new tires. Q - Some approved tires have a slightly larger diameter in the 205 @ 25.1 or even up to 25.9" vs the 25.0 for the 255 rears. One Bridgestone N4 set is 25.2 vs 24.8. I understand the AWD is somewhat effected by this and sends more torque up front if there is a shorted tire in the rear. This would naturally occur anyway as the rears wear faster than the front. Any suggestion on limits here in starting dia. difference? Thanks, Jack in Seattle
