R56 JCW Tire Upsize

Rate this Entry
I am in need of new tires for my R56 JCW and am considering going to a 225/45R17 size versus the OEM 205/45R17. Leaning towards Michelin Pilot Sports A/S 3 or Pilot Super Sport. Hoping to improve the ride at least marginally on the softer side. Has anyone got experience doing this or know the Pros and Cons of doing this.

Concerns are 1) Clearances to suspension etc. 2) Handling 3) Ride comfort.

Thanks in advance
