Re: whats the best size wheel/tire for a front "skinny"
For the street, I would go no smaller than 195/65-15 because of the weight.
Smaller tire width, less tire contact, less rolling friction, less upsrung weight.
The difference between the 5 inch wide rim and 7 inch wide rim, providing both have the same backspacing, is the scrub radius, the relation between the SAI, steering axis inclination, and the centerline of the wheel. the two meet together at the road surface, as in a stock set-up and offer the least amount of rolling resistance and tire wear. Install a wider wheel and centerline moves out causing more resistance, a longer lever so to speak, but greater road feedback.
