    Time to change tires. I now have big wide tires in the rear and smaller (narrower) in front. This was recommended the last time I changed, but I was not explained why.

    Can anybody explain for me?

    What are the ideal dimensions front/rear for a Mustang with AOD (3:55 axle ratio) ?

    it depends on your setup, and what you are wanting from the car. personally i prefer my tires and wheels to be the same size on all four corners. for our classics something like a 205/65r-15 works real nice imo. remember these are light cars and really dont need a great deal of tread width.
