Default Tire size on C6 Vette

Hello all-
My first post here and need some help.

I have a track car and the active handling can be an issue at time so let me toss this question out to see some oppions of others with maybe more knowlage.....

Looking at Hoozier'* list of rain tires they now have a few more options.
Staying with the stock rims....
Looks like the 335/30/19 @ 27" tire hight and the 275/35/18 @ 25.2"

Do you think the 1.8" front to rear would mess with the AH system
Stock is more like 1.2"

What'* your thought on this? Is it a useable set-up?

im a little surprised they made them different in the first place, but must be programed to be fine. ive seen just haveing the wrong air pressure set off the abs or stability control. maybe there is someway you can have it programed to use those tires if you want to with hptuners or have someone tune it.

The dealer might be able to reset the tire size in the computer. I know they can on trucks. When i work for the chaevy dealer we did it all the time when people put bigger tires on their trucks.
