      Ftg measurements are so stupid. They mean nothing in regards to proper fitment as wheel size and tire size play huge roles in that.

      Someone on 205/40/17 might have the same fitment(or stance) as a guy on 225/35/19's yet have a 1"+ lower ftg measurement. Doesn't mean the guy on 19's isn't "proper".

      butt dyno says yes. when im rolling at 20mph, and the dsg picks up first gear when i step on it, the tires will break loose. and gas mileage has increased as well.
