If I change out my rims to A Spec Wheels...can I still use my 245 tires? The A Spec calls for the 265 but not sure if that's bc of the cars suspension or the rim

You should be OK. The A-Spec and Advance wheels are 8.5" wide, vs 8" wide for the Tech. The specs for the conti tires show that wheel widths up to 8.5" are OK for the OEM 245-50R20 tire size - so you should be OK to use those tech tires.

Probably not. The tread patch will be the same and the overall diameter will be the same - you'll likely only see a slight difference in tire side profile when looking at it vs the narrower Tech wheel.
