Tire question
I was running 245/35/19 in the front ... will 255/35/19 work in the front without any rubbing issues? Any adv/disadv of going a bit wider in the front?

Are you back yet?

BTW I think you might have some troubles. 245/35 rubs on full right lock for me. Offsets will make a difference too.

speedometer difference 1.05% too slow
diameter difference 1.04%

When changing tire sizes, we recommend staying within 3% of the diameter/height of the original tire. Any more than this and you face the risk of brake failure.

Depends on the suspension, width of the rims, offset of the rims, tire model.

Advantages: Decreased braking distances, decreased understeer, more wheel protection.

Disadvantages: Decreased hydroplaning resistance, increased tramlining, decreased understeer (can be hazardous with certain suspension setup and driver skill).
