Default Anyone have a huge stagger?

Has anyone dropped the front tire size by 1 inch or more while increasing the rear tire size by three inches or more while retaining the same rim size? I know that

You would have to disable the ABS
The speedo would be off
The tread pattern would be different

... but for us NA guys it would give us slightly more power and a lot more of the drag racer look by taking up more of the rear wheel well.

For example: one stock option on the 2001 was 205/55/16 (happens to be mine)
I am considering dropping the front to 205/40/16 and inflating the rear to 255/60/16, then lowering the rear suspension to a rake of just 2 inches above the front.

That said, HIT ME!

Welcome to the forum.Nice looking car,I love the flames.As for changing the tire sizes most of us want to level the rear with the front.That would give it even more rake.

OK,I see you edited while I was typing about the rake.If you just lower the back it makes the wheel gap look kind of goofy.Trust me,I tried it.Here's a picture.
