Wheels and Tires

Hi Joel, I asked this in the '06+ 997 area but received no response... I intend to do several DE events with my recently aquired 997 S. I discovered my brake pad choices were limited (to Pagids) and ordered orange pad for the fronts. Then I discovered I can not find any medium R compound tires (only Hoosiers which I can't drive to the events) in 235/35/19 and 295/30/19s! I have experience with a '98 modified M3 on Toyo RA1s, Michelin Pilot Sport Cups, and currently (happy with) Yoko AO48s. The Sport Cups have the front size but only 305/30/19s for the rear. Can I use those without messing up ABS/PASM and the balance of the car? What would you suggest... if I need to go to 18" wheels (an expense I'd prefer to avoid), what would be the appropriate sizes for offset and tires? Please advise as I have a BMW Club event next week. Thanx, David
