If you use tires with the same diameter there won't be any change at all. For example, on your 18 in wheel you can run 255/45-18 tires and keep the same 27 inch diameter as stock. I wouldn't go beyond the 18 wheels. The tires get very thin and feels like your on solid rubber tires IMO. I went with some 2010GT500 convertible wheels that were 18X9 1/2, used the 255/45-17 Hankook v12 tires and am very happy with them.
Did you get a TPMS sensor put in them? If so, how much was it?
I bought the TPMS kit from American Muscle for $149. It included everything needed including the reset tool. I installed them on my rims before I took them to have the tires mounted and balanced. I also needed the steering limiters made by roush. Got them from AM for $10. They were so easy to install and did the trick with these wider tires and rims.
I have those rims, with the 555 Nittos, great combo!! I got the TPMS sensors with them, AM installed the sensors and mounted the tires...All I had to do was mount the tires on the car and reset the sensors. AM has a tool that does that for you, along with instructions. It really changed the look of the car and really helped the handling.
