You (Livewire) had told me in another thread that going with a 22" tire on the rear of the 350 would be better than the stock size.

I was wondering if going with taller tire on the front (ie: 22 to 23") would be a problem.

I also measured my friends 350 and it sits way over an inch higher on the front than mine but he has different brand name tires even tho they are suppose to be the same size.

I found a 23x7x10 here:

Would the 23's be ok?

I'm basically looking for the tallest fronts without sacrificing driveabilty.

Am I wrong in my thought process here?

It's so hard to recommend tires based on the size on the sidewall because they so often vary quite a bit, but the Honda tires (Otusu Sp?) tend to the big side, so I would try them. Of course, I have a shed full of tires I don't like, so maybe I should be quiet!

Thanks,

I think the tires on his are Otusa's (or whatever) so that might be why. Over an inch more in ground clearance is quite a bit so I'm just trying to get as much as I can until eventually going with a LT kit which is only a dream right now unless business picks up again.
