Default Help with tire size to run to stop slip coming on

Slip is always coming on.
Current setup
F 225/45/18
R 265/35/18
this causing slip issues almost every drive (iwork in hills)
idk what my wheel size is but i plan on going with 9.5 on my new wheels all around or 9.5 front 10.5 back if it matters.

what size do i need to eliminate it? Note my car is low on coils. No like stupid low to scrape everything but low!

Put a 275/40-18 on the rear

or

more the 265/35-18 to the front and install 285/35-18 rear.


Two good options, saw this coming when I answered your other thread.

Your question was already answered:

What was wrong with the first answer? You didn't like someone (two of us... same two in this thread) telling you that you had the WRONG setup?? You've used up your newbie spoon allotment.

That's a good one. You don't know me, you know nothing about me, I give you answers (that you apparently don't like) and I'm a troll.

OK, so be it.

But here's the thing.... you asked that question, I (and others) gave you a spoon fed answer that has been pretty much been played out countless times over 16 years and you ask the same question? Did I have to take my time to give you that rote answer? Nope, but I did, figuring it'd save you some time and energy. Did I just say "Search for it."? Nope. I GAVE YOU THE ANSWER, Mister Instant Gratification. You want other opinions, why not search for it then? There's at least a thousand on topic.

Then, you don't respond to the first post and you come back here looking for yet another spoon feeding without even acknowledging the first. I don't care if you don't thank me, nature of the interwebs. But if you're too damn lazy to search a little well then it's on you.

Would I give you an infraction or a ban? Hardly, not worth the time. But if you can't play by well established forum etiquette (not just this forum nor are they even RULES), can't take someone telling you what you need to know but don't like, then my having to try to clean up extraneous spam type messes by saying "don't double post" (which is basically what I said), then you're not welcome here.

This is the kind of malcontent that causes me to just NOT answer questions from an experience base of close to 50 years in the biz. Try to help a guy and WTF. Ehhhhh....

OP makes multiple threads about the same question and a topic that has been covered countless times (and usually comes up once a week). Mic provides an honest answer. OP calls Mic a troll while not commenting on Trav's moped tire recommendation. Priceless.

Hey OP, if you're tired of the slip light, just get rid of your VDC, TCS, ABS, and SRS. They're clearly weighing you down and causing the slip light.

Hey! Moped? MOPED?!? Excuse me, Mister Heel, my roadster runs on tahrs a mere 10mm wider but same size otherwise!

No, those are Trav's Carvett drag razin' front tahrs.

Watch out for those poles when you're doing "sick drifts" with those 15s on your birthday, Mic!

He doesn't know what we're talking about yet, but once it happens, he'll know.

One thing is certain - he won't be able to figure it out by using the search function.
