A good balancer like ATI or Fluidyne will do the trick, however, I don't believe they are off the shelf products. Still cheaper than an engine swap, which is the route I went.

I'd recommend 255. Another option is 245/40. It's taller than the factory tire, but still shorter than E46 M3 tires. The extra sidewall actually made my speedo more accurate, and helps on the rough...

It really depends on the suspension setup of the car, the tires, temperature, and if its rainy. And if welded correctly, the welds will not break.

Multiple reasons... Stronger/more reliable engine, cheap parts with a massive aftermarket, more revs (8000rpm limiter), and the fact that it's different (and sounds sooooo good).

Yes I'm very aware. By "barely bobbed up," I meant that it bobbed up partially, not the full amount... i.e. there is still room to add more. Thank you for your consideration.
