Since 2014, my Smart 451 Turbo has 7.5x16 rims with 195/45 tires all around. On dry roads, the handling is much better because there is no more severe understeer, instead the Smart behaves only slightly understeering to neutral.

But if you are too fast on a wet road with a narrowing corner, it can happen that the rear end becomes light when braking - it is then enough to open the steering a little to prevent oversteer. Normally, the Smart would push over the front wheels in this case. However, I never drive so fast on wet roads that it becomes a problem.
