Anyone else think it's kinda stupid for a street car to have 21" wheels in the back and 20" in the front?

Because they're huge or because they're different sizes? I think vets run 2 different diameters front and back. But no it still don't make much sence

thats the concept car. I would expect the production to be riding on either 18's or 20's and the base model to probably wear 17 shoes

I'm more for buying 4 tires of the same size and being able to rotate from time to time. On a non-street car I understand completely, but a passenger car imo should have everything the same size.

The directional tires they use on modern performance cars/trucks only allow you a front back rotation. Different front and rear sizes would leave you with NO rotation allowed without a dismount.

In the days of old, it was common to see hot rod cars with smaller front wheels.

Oops, sorry. After a few bad 'incidents' I rarely click on links while at work. The article was a good read, even if largely speculation (other than the car's existence).

Now if we can just get the Camaro to get some spy photos I'm a GM guy at heart, but this new Challenger is badass.

Sweet! I'll be on the lookout for some 'professional' pics as well.
Those pros tend to miss details though. Hope it will be at the Chicago Auto Show.

All I can express is that I'm glad the sport car is making a come back. I was so sick of seeing these family sedans and mini vans with over 200hp just to commute back and forth to work.
