I don't DD with the 15's and drag radials, too dangerous if caught in the rain.
I drive to the track and back with them on though.

Not sure if the 2011's are different, but I have heard that 325's can rub the bump stop plates on the subframe and maybe even the shocks when the car squats on launch.

Good excuse to do hood pins.
I have gone 130+mph with my Cervini Type IV hood, no problem & no pins. One disadvantage is weight - the fiberglass hoods are about twice the weight of the stock hood.
