Even in GS, the car is competitive.
Granted the Cooper S is better balanced (which is why they are the national champion), but depending on the course, it is a give or take with the SVT. We give them a run for their money on the DOT race tires.
I AX using the Hoosier A6 and I run a 225/40ZR17 and they fit with no issue. I've also run the Toyo with 235/35ZR17 on the stock wheels with no issue.
