Maintaining the existing balance of the car with regards to under/over steer means roughly maintaining the front to rear width ratio. 245F/295R will definitely push the car towards the understeer direction since it is same as stock front and much wider in the rear. That would not be my choice at all. I would go 255 or even 265 front but I have heard 265 F will rub.
