The difference between 245/265 and 265/285 is very small, by the way. You will lose steering response and gain a bit more total grip.
As you suggest, if the difference is minimal, the last thing I want is reduced steering response. I have posted here many times that the slow steering, the overboost, and the lack of feel is the only problem I have with the car.
