Default Need some expert help

I have a 2017 WRX base with stock suspension.
I just recently purchased Enkei GTC01RR 18x9.5 with Continental ExtremeContact Sport 255/40/18 on this forum.
I want to change to all season tires. I have no plans to do any suspension work in the future.
My question is: should I stay with 255/40/18 or go with 255/35/18 or 265/35/18?
This Is my 1st Subaru and I am not sure what to do. My main goal is to get a comfortable ride. WRX is my DD 3x/week.

If you're trying to improve the ride over the stock wheels and tires; You're not going to do it with any of the options you have provided.

Taller sidewall is more comfortable.

If there are no rubbing issues, stick with 255/40.

x2. tires will not fix the ride issue. find a set of premium or limited struts. that is the only thing you can do to make a measurable difference in ride quality.
