Hi guys !
Recently I changed my summer setup (215/45 R17) to my winter setup (195/65 R15) and there is a very noticeable performance improvement for in-gear acceleration, I think because of the thinner tire, because the improvement is much more noticeable than when I bought new rims and shed of 5kg(11lbs) on each wheel.
Of course in the corners the car is not as planted as before but still pretty good thanks to the very hard suspension.
I am thinking on maybe switching to 205/50 R17 tires on the summer setup to have best of both worlds. Does anyone tried this or any other setup ? What are the thoughts on this ?

225/45 r17 is a great size if you want performance.

Yeah wider! It’s a big fat car. That’s the size I run on the non turbo stock rims. I have wider ones with a 235 on now for competition.
