Response to Silly tires and handling question.

camber and suspension geometry allows the extra width of tread to be used(it is a question) then you should get more grip rearwards and shift the balance to understeer-especially if running a bar up front. The bar will increase roll resistance at the front and thus shift cornering load in that direction. It might be good for Colin Duckworth to chime in on this one. Is this a street application?

It is possible that the combo you describe could go anywhere on the continuum from understeer to oversteer with a stop somewhere around neutral. No matter what, everything that happens will be happening at cornering loads higher than before.
