Want to put bigger tires on the rear, 17's, and 16's or 15's on the front.
Anybody have any experience with this?
Anybody tried it?
Would it look great or derpy?

In another thread you have it up for sale :think

Your choice, not recommended by KIA - can kiss your power-train warranty goodbye. :sneakiness:

Your ABS and Stability Control work on differentials in speed of the wheels. If you have different rolling diameters front to back it will throw everything out and could possibly create a dangerous operation of a system that is supposed to keep you safer.

Modern cars aren't as simple as putting big and littles on a street-rod :sneakiness:

It is your car I'm guessing-do whatever you want but don't blame us.

Derpy is not a term I am familiar with, but I suspect it is in the same terminology family as "fail" :ridiculed:

It will put you at odds with one of the basic, unwritten laws of customizing. You don't fit big wheels on the back of a car that everyone knows is front wheel drive.
