TIRES, how big can i go?

how big of a tire can i get for both the front and the back? this might sound like a no brainer but i'm referring to width, not height.

I heard you can put 160s on the back, is there any truth to that? has anyone tried?

160 Is the largest you could put on there. But the larger tire will make it corner worse.

Yes, it is for looks (unless it's being drag-raced). And yes, a bigger tire will corner worse.
