I join you in lamenting the loss of 27-28 inch tall sticky rubber in small wheel diameters.

We should have a "Gee thanks Hoosier for discontinuing my tire size" party.  

(My Fmod is in similar straights, probably easier for me though)

This is probably going to be a dumb question.  Except for the fact that they look awesome, what is the advantage to running a bigger tire in the rear than the front?  Does it have something to do with the bigger contact patch on a slick?

Not dumb at all. Bigger contact patch and the tire acts as part of the suspension, but it's harder to get temp into it.

Thank you for your kindness during this difficult time.

yeah, I guess I just blurted that out; emotional word vomit style.

to quote Lincoln, upon inspecting a model of the USS Monitor for the first time, who said:  "All I have to say is what the girl said when she stuck her foot in the stocking. It strikes me there's something in it."

What size is the new tire? Close to a 315/30/18?

I'll be going to that or wider when I set up for street tires.  The slicks are 355/65R16.

I'm guessing 65 is a typo?
