tygen,

Well it is always a balancing act. Trade off one thing for another. We probably corner hard about 1% of the time we are in a car, but that's what we measure by....go figure.

I have a much different car 02 Infiniti Q45 Sport. I run Kuhmo asx 255/45/18. It's an all-season performance tire. 10" wide. But over on the infiniti site I get grief for 1. not running 20" and 2. for not running pure high performance tires. Cant win for losing. But they work for me because I really don't slam thru curves trying to pull 1g.

As a note, you can get nylon bushings for the sway bars and the end links. Really tightens things up.
