Is is ok to put a 255/40/17 Tire on the front ?

Asked by Apr 29, 2017 at 05:50 PM about the 2011 BMW 3 Series 323i Sedan RWD

Question type: Car Customization

I accidentally gave the tire store the rear tire size to replace the front tires. I allowed the tire store to mount them and have only noticed a little bit of performance difference. I have no rubbing issues. My main concern is will my rack n pinion steering become effected by this bigger tire on the front ? The tire owner says he does this all the time on my type of cars. Just trying to get some input.

Your steering will be fine.

Thanks for the feedback. Update is my car is a 328i not 323i. If that makes a difference probably not.

No, the rack and pinon will be just fine.
