Advice: Wider rear tires

I have the competition package rims with standard tire set up that I think is 245/35/19 and 265/35/19 right now, but I'm interested in some wider tires at the rear since they seem to spin rather easily and I thought a wider tire would help to put all of that torque to the road more efficiently.

Any advice?

If I didn't also widen the front, would I notice considerably more understeer? Any other issues to consider?

Anybody done this with some experience to report?

Do a quick search and you'll find many many threads on this subject. Just a quick FYI.....I ran a 265-30 and 295-30 on these wheels..........Phil
