Thanks for clarifying that for me Jay. I've considered that tire as well, however I would prefer to go with a tire size more in line with the OEM spec to keep my speedometer more accurate. If I get some wider wheels next year, like 8-8.5"s all around, would that make up for the increased size (225/45/17 vs 215/40/17 on 7" wide wheels), or is that not a big enough increase to affect the tires? I would likely have to get my fenders rolled by you to fit the rubber in the back too, because as it sits I have ~4mm of clearance . Also, the treadwear rating of the R-S3's scares me a bit considering I'll still be DDing this car.
