I had an interesting conversation today with a friend who has a 996 turbo. He warned me that when i get my 997, that I should be careful when taking tight corners.

Apparently, he blew a tyre as he judged the front correctly but forgot that the rear was wider. When he went to the dealer, they told him this is not so uncommon.

So how much wider is the front than the back? Obviously more interested in a 997 as thats what I have on order. And how many of you have clipped the rear wheels by mistake in this way?
