You want to swap the drive axle, so rears for you. And there is a terminal point where bigfer tires will be more harm than help, but i don't think a reasonable person will encounter that. If you do 16s front, 17/18 in back, you will help lower engine rpm, and create a low pressure zone under rhe rear of the care- more downforce, in theory, but that, in theory, means more drag.

From my limited time on the site, mcrews knows his stuff. His guides are pretty good, and you might want to go his and my route and buy a more aero efficient front fascia. Just an idea.
