With this car I'm thinking 225 up front and 245/255 out back.

I plan to go with 235/40-17 Dunlop Star Specs all around. On stock or stock sized wheels if possible, although I realize 7" of wheel width is a little narrow for that size, I'll at least give it a try.

Adding more grip is just going to dial that out. On the track sure fine, on the road, not so much.
Not particularly, I wouldn't bother changing the tires out if I got the car. It would be best if they came with 16" wheels since tires are cheaper. If I were to buy the car, whatever tires it comes with, I'll use them up, and then buy the next set based on whatever good deal I can find, maybe summer performance to see what the craze is all about.

However a lot of people appear to see higher grip tires as something very important, so I'm suggesting that perhaps they shouldn't be focusing on tire size but rather tire compound.

I've only been reading this forum for a few hours but sheesh this line of thinking is already getting old. There are plenty of ways to remedy the understeer.
