Quick question. I can understand why RWD cars have bigger tires in the rear but how big of a benefit is it to run bigger tires up front on a FWD car vs the same all around?

Why is a sponsored racer asking this?? J/K!!

better traction off the line (think drag race), better stability in corners, and would allow the back to swing out which is favorable if you control it!

Lol nice comeback. I'm still learning about the car and tire setups. This will be my first full year of doing various events so bare with me lol.

Yeah, FWD drivers have used different size tires front and rear to tune to their desires. Nothing wrong with it - it's just another tool to add or subtract traction at the end you want.
