just got 4.30's installed and need new tires. considering wider wheels to get about 1.4 extra inches of tire contact (285/40 vs.255/45 KDW's) . Is this extra width going to be significant for traction purposes. enough so to buy a set of konig villians(17x9). Thanks

I think you will notice a difference. I also have a set of seventeen by nines for sale. They are centerline (warriors). On the front are new 245/45 and the rear are almost new nitto 555zrs in 275/40. The latter feels real good and my intention is to put that size all around if they fit.
