I honestly glanced at that and saw "thinking of getting some beef in rear."

I prefer the handling characteristics of a 22/25 versus 24/25 for our cars.

If you add a thicker front, you will add more stiffness but also add more understeer.

That's why it's really best to have a larger rear then front.

If you do 24 in the front, you will need a 28 in the rear to keep a good turning ability.

22/25 is actually really good.

I have that same setup and oversteer plenty at AutoX. But I also adjust lots of other things as well. Adjusting the shock rebound and air pressure also change that turnability as well.
