2001 TT Tire Question

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3600 cc; Total Mileage: approx. 3000;

I have a 2001 996tt with modified brakes and suspension. The brakes are from the GT3R (380 mm/350 mm). The coils and shocks are JRZ Triple Adjustable with upper monoballs. The rest of the suspension was replaced with GT3R parts where applicable (lower monoballs, arms etc.) The sway bars are GT3R with adjustable drop links. I want to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. The stock sizes are 225/40ZR18's with a 25.2 inch outside diameter and 295/30ZR18's with a 25.1 inch OD. I would like to use the 265/35ZR18 Cup tire. It's outside diameter is 25.2 inches so it is a match. I realize I would need new 10 inch front wheels. I have checked and the tires will fit. My question is what will the combination 265/35ZR18 and 295/30ZR18 do to my handling? How will it change?
