You're good on the tire sizes, looking for a specific brand tire in mind? You might want to take a look on what we have in store here:

I'm running Firehawk Indy 500's 275/35/19 rears and 245/40/19 fronts and I'll tell you this setup works better than the 255 and 225 high dollar tires I had on the car before. I hold a straight line just fine and the former understeer is MUCH less. I'd compare this to the square 255 setup a doctor I work with runs on his e46 M3. I don't track much at all since I have 6 children and no time, but for daily driving and backwoods runs down winding roads I would recommend this setup and these tires. Unless you live up north, then go with a solid all season tire in the same width. Stopping distance decreased by about 20%. I measure this in distance and time in seconds to stop going 60mph and 100mph. Wheel spin from a launch and in 2nd gear is far less too. I have underdrive pulleys, headers, and exhaust with evolve tune. Headers are a $150 Manzo set from EBay and they work great. I put a drop in K&N filter in the car vs. an intake as I've never noted any difference with an intake aside from the turbo diesel trucks I've owned...they respond to different intakes but I've never noted a difference in a patrol car. I once did intake, headers, and exhaust on an S2000 and actually lost power because I was running so lean. I tuned the car and noted gains after about 5,500rmp in the S2000...then I boosted the car, it was stollen shortly after and totaled by the car their.
