Default Q: Tire size vs benefit

Current setup on the car is as follows

Front tires
275/35/20 Invos
Rear tires
295/35/20 Invos

Suspension is the full works from Cortex (T arm, watts link, lower lcas, coilovers and front boss comp control arms.

My question for you guys would be, are having 295's on the rear really gaining me anything performance wise? When I bought the car it had the Pirelli P zeros on it and were 275s all around.

20mm doesn't really mean much.
If the car will take a larger tire and it will fit and look right, by all means do it, but I wouldn't buy new tires when the old ones are still good.

It would be more valuable to add stickier tires.
But that comes with it's own covets, such as longevity and many of the sticky tires kick up a lot of sand/dirt/rocks.
