That looks like it's designed to have the same contact footprint as the rubber bushings, meaning it's not stressing anything any more than the stock design does. Having a smaller contact footprint...

I've run 305/30R19 square on my SS 1LE without any warnings or codes. I'm also not sure why you got warnings on 1LE sizes as I've run SS 1LE wheels/tires on an SS before also without issue, so there...

I think you might have the warranties flipped. Bumper to bumper 3yr/30k miles. Powertrain (engine and trans only) is 5yr/50k.

No calibration or anything should be needed. Should just be able to put them on and go, just make extra sure the height sensors on the suspension arms aren't damaged in the process.

Out of curiosity, how was the wheel bearing issue diagnosed? Wheel bearings on these cars are pretty beefy and shouldn't have any issues unless they are severely loaded by something like hitting...

I wouldn't worry too much about it. A 19 vs a 20 inch isn't going to do a whole lot in terms of pothole protection unless you get a really tall and mushy sidewall, at which point driving quality will...

Ditto. The triangle is likely only there to help with assembly since it keeps the banjo bolt and washer from falling off before it's bolted in.

Basically all the brake control cals won't be 100% accurate anymore, primarily ABS. It will still function, it just won't be 100% refined as it was with original parts.

I would add that it depends on how you drive, too. The OE wheels/tires will be easiest to drive with any of the PTM modes since that's what the system was cal'd around. There are performance gains to...

I just use the park brake. If you have that set, it doesn't matter if the trans is in gear or not. It'll slide before the park brake lets a wheel turn enough to load the trans.

They should fit without an issue. The fronts are 1 inch (~25mm) narrower than the rear and have 14mm less offset. That means they'll only stick out 1.5mm more on the outside than the stock rears and...

38 psi is also a bit on the high side. I'd recommend bleeding more air off and targeting closer to 35 psi when hot.

No special tricks. Just lift the front (I usually just do one corner at a time), install the spacer, then set it back down. They pop in pretty easily.

It's very likely that the TPMS sensors are causing this since the fronts are there but the rears aren't. Adding TPMS to the rear will probably work but you might also run into the same issue...
