Are u not concerned about understeer? I have 225 up front and 245 on the rear on 16`s. On damp or wet roads I can feel the front end atart to understeer when cornering quickly.

Try to put wider rubber on the front if u can

I finally got my M Contours down to the wheel shop to be refinished and wanted to make sure I bought the correct spacers and tires. The wheels are 17x7.5 up front and 17x8.5 in the rear. The tires I want to go with are Yokohama AVS Sport 215/45/17 up front and 245/40/17 in the rear. I know a couple other folks are running M Contours as well. I'd appreciate some advice on what size spacers I should use for this setup.

Thanks and take care.
