decrease turning radius by reducing wheel size?
im looking to decrease the turning radius of my car in order to gain better maneuvering. ill probably be moving to new york city soon and would definitely be able to take advantage of a lower turning radius in the city streets and small parking lots.
the easiest way i can see myself reducing the turning radius is by reducing the wheel size to 16" and using the 205/60/16 tire size used on the 4 cylinder ex models. would reducing the rim size adversely affect the VSA and traction control systems on my car?
i know i'll probably get slightly worse handling, but a grippy all-season should help out with that. if anyone has any ideas or suggestions regarding reducing the turning radius, that would be really appreciated. the turning radius right now is alright, but it definitely leaves me asking for more, especially at tight intersections.
thanks in advance for any help.
