Thanx for the information.The load rating on the Continental SportContact 6 245/30/20 is 1323 lbs per tire * 2 tires per axle = 2646 lbs per axle. The total weight of the car is 3115 with 62% of the weight on the front and 38 on the rear which means that the front tires are bearing a total of 1931 lbs and the rear is handling 1184 lbs. So the front tires can handle another 715 lbs while the rears can handle another 1462 lbs. You'd also need to account for downforce as well then add the 680 lb limit to that (which would mostly be on the rear axle). Long story short, I don't think it's the tires that are the limiting factor, I'd actually say it's most likely the suspension.
And yea it could be the suspension since it seems to be more aluminum than steel right
