I'm running 245/40/17 square and I couldn't be happier with the setup. Very balanced, predictable, light, tracks as if I'm on rails and no rubbing whatsoever (I'm not lowered). I'm on Kosei K1s with Dunlop Direzzas.

If I wrote somewhere 255 sorry, I meant 245. I wanted to go 255 but I was getting conflicting info on front clearance on the e92s. Later on I borrowed a front 255 set to try and they seemed ok at the paddock but never got to push them at the track surface.

If you have a way to test the 255s before buying, go for them. 245s will fit for sure.
Thanks Peter. Yeah, I am considering Direzza, RS3, and NT01. I realize the latter is track only. I'm not sure how lowering will come into play. Hope not at all. Any idea on your wheel size and offset?
