    Because they have two more cylinders then we do, that's why.

    And on another note, getting big wheels will hurt you unless you have a decent amount of hp (which without a power adder or stroker kit, we don't). The main purpose of wider wheels/tires is for traction. It's true that you will be able to launch harder with wider tires but you lose accelerating power due to the larger size of the wheels/tires. I think they call it rolling mass or something. I know several people who have gotten larger wheels and they all told me the change was noticeable.

    Im pretty sure that was a rhetorical question you answered there. And yes, its called rolling mass. You have to weigh the benefits of traction/vs rolling mass to know whether or not your getting more by each width of tire. Also rim size/weight makes a difference. Even if the tire/rim are the total height as before, the rim still will weigh more and create a larger rolling mass.

    hhmmm, all i was saying was that the 4.6l forums are cramped full of crapy people who turn every disagreement in to a ****in match, if you don't care then we can drop it at that, ok? sounds good to me!
