The 35's will lower your car some which can only help with the handling. Also, it will help prevent them from any possible rubbing on your fenders. The wheel offset helps with that but having a...

That is a good point. I'm running the Dunlop Direzza ZII's this year. For the last two seasons I ran the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08. So both were extreme summer tires.

I have a low profile jack and I still have to use boards to jack up the car. There isn't any shame in using boards to jack up a car.
