Obviously adding rotating mass is never a good thing, but if it adds grip, are guys seeing 0-60 and 1/4 times reduced?
The original 300cSRt8 rode STAGGERED goodyears. It seems that they made them all the same 245/45/20 all around to decrease cost.
I drove the 2012 the day my dealer got it because they wanted me to buy it badly. I realized immediately that under hard acceleration the rear of the car breaks loose from the ground and pulls hard to the right.
Later I noticed that the car spins its wheels so fast that the first second of that 0-60 is spent SQUEALING TIRE.
This thing NEEDS staggered rears.
