Default 17x8.5 with 245-35-17 tires

has anybody run this tire size?

I found the goodyear F1-GSD3 is available in this size and would think it might work well with a 17x8.5 wheel.

It would be a little wider and a little bit shorter than the 235-40-17 I am currently running, so I am thinking more grip and a shorter gearing effect might be helpful.

You should use 245/40/17. 35 is too thin
You can go up to 255/40/17 with correct offset and just roll the rear fenders a little bit

yeah, I've been looking around and the selection of tires is better in 245/40/17 too...
