Aleks is there any advantages? The bigger the tires the more weight, which defeats the purpose of the FIs.
David 275/295 is a proper setup ...

with a wider tire your car will hook up much better on turn in vs running a skinier tire... You should not be concerned about the weight of the tire ... the car with the wider tires is capable of running better times vs the car with narrow tires with the exact rims.

Why do you think new BMW Z4 GTE is running 18x12.5 and 18x13 wheels that take super wide tires ? they can run smaller size wheels/tires to save weight but they will get better times with the car hooking up better with wider tires.
