The ST is about 10-15 mm lower stock (0.393" - 0.59" lower), I think it was closer to the 10 mm difference.

Until it rains. Bigger contact patch with same weight = lower PSI across the patch. Unless the bigger tire's tread is WAY better at getting the water out, that = hydroplaning. Not fun. Well, maybe a little, but only if you save it without denting anything and you have a change of underwear. I learned this with RWD and mid-engine. Verrrry squirrelly past the limit. At least with FWD the effect is not as bad.
