my Audi A5 with 265hp had 255 rears and 255 fronts
this one with 414 only has 265 in the rear
when i replace my tires i will get 285 back and 255 front
Sorry, but 8% wider in the rear won't make much difference. You will have the same contact patch area, which is based on weight, and be more susceptible to hydropaning in wet conditions.
