I haven't... Yet. I mean, i think i see what you're saying, with the whole smaller tire thing?
But there is function behind that. Part of why i want smaller tires is for looks but really i want a smaller outside diameter and i cant retain width while going with a shorter sidewall.
The smaller OD would be hugely beneficial for my current set up as the 3.31 final drive is huge and i want to go shorter. But smaller tires give me the benefit of also lowering the car itself putting the center of gravity lower. Stretching as much as i use to hate it... Has grown on me and also has its benefits of a stiffer sidewall and a wider track width. a 225 not stretch will not put as much rubber down as a stretched 225.
Now that i have explained my thoughts i personally am very fond of seeing the wide tires under my car and have had second thoughs of running smaller wheels and tires.
But i can promise you that 99% of the things i do to this car are for function.
