Default Maximum Front Tire Diameter 986

Hey guys, I’m looking at plus sizing the front tires on my 99 Boxster from the stock 205/50R17 25.1” diameter to a 235/45R17 25.3” diameter. My question is regarding the extra couple of tenths in diameter up front. Will this cause any rubbing or ABS issues?

Im stuck on the 235/45R17 because I get a hook up on Contis and the ExtremeContact Sport doesn’t come in a 235/40R17.

The car is a base model without any TCS.

Thanks in advance

I don't list wider than 225/45 for it, and that is the much more popular upsize from 205. Are you going wider out back also? If not you could get oversteer. The Extreme Contact Sport is available in 225/45
