Tire size change effect on DSC...

I'm thinking of upgrading tire size to 255/35 F and 275/35 R or 280/30 R and was wondering if either of these two setups will affect DSC?

If you maintain the stagger, rear tires 1/2" larger diameter than the front, there should not be any effect.

Some folks are running square set-ups, and don't seem to have any issues.

Thanks, that's what I thought.

The 255/275 Pilot SS setup maintains stagger but is .6" larger diameter, I suspect the slight diff won't matter.

There is more of a change than that as your tires wear. Just do a few burnouts to break 'em in!
