Quick Q re: tire sizes

Hi all

I was wondering if there are any other effects of changing tire size with a significantly different diameter OTHER than gearing and potential DSC deactivation?

Thx

Handling
Ride quality
Gas mileage
Risk of rubbing on suspension or fender liner


Nothing will happen to the DSC if you change wheel and tire sizes. I'm not sure why everyone thinks the system is unable to manage a change like that. Unless you're doing something bizarre like putting 30" wheels on a car that came with 19" wheels, small changes will be imperceptible to the DSC behavior.

Excellent.

It's a track fitment so all those except handling are already not optimal :
