But they won't fit over the 330mm disks that are now fitted to the front.

My tyre size calculator says you should be running 225/35/18. Your tyres are too tall if I'm right.

Forget slicks then.

There's a gazillion coil over kits, choose one, and rims have been done to death too.

Try to find a recommendation from a fellow owner.

Keep it simple, don't try to do your own development, it'll cost three times as much, take 4 times as long, and Bugger the car along the way.

Got the coil overs
Now need to know if a slightly higher wall height will be a + or a - in the "feel" of the car on the track.

You should check out wrx forums, somebody is bound to have posted such information.

Yes you are correct
But
I wanted Michelin pilot super sports for the road tyre. I also wanted to be able to swap Tyres from this car to my wife's car so they will be running the same size and type of tyre.

Also a slightly higher gearing on the road is not a bad thing as it has such a shirt ratio gearbox

You won't notice ~5-10mm, but much more you might.

Bear in mind front / rear size and centre diff.

The larger rolling radius won't be helping with the rubbing. Why not go with the correct rolling radius for your track rubber at least?

MHH that is what I was planning but did not know if there would be a better feel from a 17 or 18 inch rim

I don't know if a slightly higher side wall is beneficial on the track where the looks of 18 inch on the road out way everything else.

Difs are fine as long as all 4 are the same size.

Not sure of size availability, but Pirelli trofeo R, or Dunlop D03 are awesome.
