I'm currently running 255/35 front and 285/35 and I have a bit less than 1" difference in tire diameter between front and rear (RE-11). I think there may be theoretical reasons why the DSC might have it's function affected, but I put 4 and 1/4 track days on this set up (sequential) and I found no effect whatsoever on MDM activation or intervention compared to stock sizes, so I would expect DSC to be similarly affected. Perhaps there might be a few percent difference in activation, but it's not detectable by me.
What wheels are you running this on?

I was also considering a 285/35 size in the rear because the sidewall and height is better balanced with a 255/35 front tire.

I was hoping to run the re-11's on oem 19s. I currently have re-11 in stock sizes and love them. But they do appear to be a bit stretched and were a son of a bitch to install bc they are so stiff

Any pics of your setup? Id love to see it
