Yeah agree on delta being the most important thing. I think PTuning mentioned their baseline was in the mid 160's. That seems on par with some of the other stock Twins I've seen them dyno.

As Alan said, make sure to warm up the engine first before redlining (about 10 minutes of easy driving). Otherwise, should be fine.

Isn't 190-200 whp the norm now for a headerback exhaust + drop-in filter + tune on pump gas? That should be about 225-235 hp at the crank.

If so, Cosworth getting 230 hp out of those parts +...

Get the 17x8 wheels. Probably the most versatile size for this car if you're near stock power. You can run anything from 215-235 width tires with no issues.

I think on lighter cars like our's, they're fine as mentioned.

I've seen them chunk pretty badly, but only on heavier cars (335i, TT-RS, etc.)
