Tyres and setting

Will there be any way, in the future, for having mismatched tyres/rims for cars? This would have an effect on the look of muscle cars.

Secondly, would we be able to see the cars off the ramp in a different setting, like on a road?

Thanks

We already do have the ability to give cars different size wheels

Re: Tyres and setting

Different diameter between the front and the back, that is. Which is, as far as I'm aware, not common practice in production cars.

Dude what are you talking about?
This car is obviously straight out of the factory.

I know we are switching forums, but could you please stop taking part in the derailing of threads?

On a more serious note, there are in fact cars with mismatched wheel diameters, the Lotus Elise being one example.

What's life without a little bit shitposting?
And yeah, there are cars with bigger rear tires that sold usually only slightly bigger though, that's not too big of a stretch considering that this thing http://i.imgur.com/Hq1UGjD.jpg was sold to the public, and had insane speed in 1970, if you'd put that thing on modern tires it would be relevant today.

Let's imagine that for a moment...

Back on topic, different size in rims is uncommon, but it's used in some production cars, specially those (but not limited to) RWD cars with high power output, like the porshe carrera gt (19" Front, 20" rear).

Re: Tyres and setting

It's not common, but it's certainly not unheard of. Pretty much every supercar and quite a few of the higher-tier sports cars have staggered rim and wheel diameters. I think it would benefit the game, but I understand that for the added complexity it probably isn't the most economical addition. I'd say leave it as is for now and maybe add it to the list for things to work on after release.
