I am on Bilstein B12 suspension (The height is given by the Eibach Pro-Kit springs). Car looks even better now, I will do a photoshoot when I will buy my new camera.

As for the "planted" feeling, the suspension has to do with this more than the wheels but what I can say is that I am very surprised by the levels of grip of the Continental DWS. With the Nitto 555R in the back there is a high level of grip but there is still wheel spin if you floor it in 2nd gear.
Correct, i mean 245/35 19. Im currently running 235/35 and at full turning lock there seems to be rougly 1cm clearance between the front tire and the back of the front spoiler. Im worried that 245s will rub, however im on oem m-sport suspension with no plans on a drop. What do you think, will it work?

The only information I can give you is that my 245/40/18 (identical diameter to 245/35/19) do not rub on the right side, and the only reason they rub at the left is because that plastic plate from the Power Kit. So yes, I think it will work.
