    I have a Audi A3 and was just woundering if people put wider tyres on the back and thinner on the front?? i.e 225/40/18 on the front and 235/40/18 on the back?? would this help handling?

    Most guys are running the same front and back....

    I think on RWD cars such as mercs, M3s etc, the rear tyres are a lot wider as they;re what drive the car forward.

    I doubt it would do anything on the A3 TBH.

    Just go for good tyres (I got Conti Sport Contact 3 - Best tyres i've had!) and with the right tyre pressures, you should be able to minimise that oversteer you seem to get free with front wheel cars :D

    On tight bends, roundabouts, wherever you can!
