What diameter are the Nitto's? Stock SS tires are ~28.66"; if the front and rear diameters are too different (more than 0.5" or so I've read) the car will throw a hissy fit.

Any suspension mods? Lowered?

Rear camber is way off side-to-side and no reason they can't be the same assuming the car hasn't been hit. I'm lowered about 1.5" in the rear and my guys could still...

Safe to go 2.5" all the way. Not sure if you'd lose any power in doing so, but if you did a doubt you'd even notice - I had 2.5" for a bit and didn't notice any difference.

Was it for sure in D and not M? If in Sport Mode (M) and you go pedal to the metal the trans will downshift easier/quicker and the RPM's will stay high for a bit after letting off the throttle.
