Default Tires

Would 255 tires fit on the front of my 92 Boneville. But then would I have to get tires of the same width to match the back?? The only reason I'm asking is because a friend can get me 2 tires balanced and mounted for $20. But I would have huge tires on the front and skinny ones on the back, I'm not sure what that would do to my steering. Or should I just get a seperate set of rims to put these new tires on and use them for the track.

I've heard that 255s are too wide. I think ssei95 was running 255s and experienced some problems. maybe he'll chime in here and state his 2 cents!

I wouldn't do different sizes front and back.

How badly would this affect the final drive ratio? I am assuming it would make it taller which means slower.
