Different tyre height between front and rear
It's time for me to buy 2 new winter tyres for my 147. I have 2 2811 DOT Barum Polaris 3 tyres (195/60/R15) which I intend on putting at the front and I want to buy 2 more tyres for the rear.
Now, the tyres which I'd like to put at the rear are Continental's ContiWinterContact of size 195/65/R15. However this will mean I'll have a diameter increase of 2cm and my rear tyre height will go up by that much. What effects will that have apart from looks? Has anybody done that?
I'm considering bigger height tyres because the price is cheaper and for the next winter season I'll throw away the Barums and buy 2 new Continentals to even the car. What do you guys think?
