I think you'll find that you lose a good amount of grip in the rear. I went from a 255/40 to a 245/40 on my 330 and that was a huge difference. Not sure if it was from the decrease in width and height (25" to 24.7").

I'd like to go 295s on my 18s but there isn't much of a selection in street tires
