ans 1 - obviously to reduce understeer and burnout issues in a FWD wider tires are used in front, RWD's always use wider at the rear for the same reason... AWD, usually use the same size all round but sometimes wider at the rear because the front tires have rubbing issues...

ans 2 - really dont know much about USDM cars...

ans3 - the prepaid payment card is available at most groceries and supermarkets... and maybe also at fuel stations... why dont you simply get a permanent parking card from the municipality? that will a lot cheaper if you get an area designated card, ive heard its about AED2k for an year... plus no hassles... for details, go to the municipality office near the new vegetable market near the cricket stadium...

ans 4 - simply call the dealership, long live 181... :D

ans 5 - a member here has one for sale, turbo 4g63, manual, tein coilovers, sunroof, white, new engine, very clean condition... (really dont remember his username...)

Good luck...

Ans 1: As a rule of thumb, it is generally good to keep identical sized tires on all 4 corners of a FWD car, and if anything wider tires would go up front to reduce understeer. On an AWD car, it is generally recommended to stay with all 4 tires equal no matter what.
I on the other hand had thinner tires in the front and thicker tires in the rear of my civic. NOTE - I didn`t say wider, i said thinner and thicker. And to be honest with you I noticed better traction and control. shit beats me why it worked so well, maybe kingkenny and albertho can fill you in better on this...

the rest of your questions rashood has answered !!

on a non track car, it is best to use all 4 tires of the same size and width etc as you can shift their positions every 5k KMs...

i haven't ever noticed any difference in handling due to thickness but yes it does matter with rubbing issues and ride height...

The 2G is FF too but certain models, like the one that was for sale here, are AWD (GSX)
