Question Tire Flex or Soft Springs

LT sedan.

Let's say you can only choose one.

Improve suspension or wheel/tire?

Which would you choose and why?

1. Springs with OEM wheel/tire.

2. OEM springs with +1 or +2 wheel combo.

+1 or +2 wheel combo? not familiar w/ that.

springs should always be ur first suspension upgrade if ur going for better handling. without more power, u dont need any stickier rubber. the tires we have do good enough considering our power.

well, go w/ the +1 or +2 wheel combo if you dont want a serious drop right now... but then again... i'm obsessed w/ being low, so if it were ME i'd go w/ springs... sooooo.... i guess it really depends on what YOU want... LOL... either way would look better than OEM, right? lol

My bad I just realized way u were talking about, I have just never heard getting wider tires referred to that way. Well my answer still stands, no need for wider tires unless it putting out more power. Springs will help get rid of the awful umdersteer though.
