I've got 255's on the rear of my XR8, Wouldn't go to 255's on the front, would tramtrack too much. Handles well cme hooks up with them on the rear. Go 235's on the front IMHO

I had them on the rear at one stage. You can always go and get a pair of narrower tyres for the front and just keep the other 2 255's for spares for the rear later.
