What are the benefits, if any, on a FF vehicle?

ex: front - 16/45/205
rear - 16/50/225

No benefits at all. WHY would you think there would be?

Fronts accelerate, brake, turn, and support over 60% of the weight.

Rears brake (minimally b/c of weight transfer and distribution), hold the rear in corners but don't turn, and support less than 40% of the weight.

I would think this would just be common sense. There are many FWD race cars with bigger front tires than rear you know.

I didn't think there would be and you confirmed that for me, thanks.
