There is no upper balljoint on this model.

My understanding is:

Wider tires have more rolling resistance, particularly significant at higher speeds. The CA bushings give more under the higher load. This leads to a toe out situation with standard alignment parameters.

The offset would increase the 'leverage' of the rolling resistance.

You may need to set the toe in a bit more to get even wear with wider tires.

This assumes there are no component level issues, of course...
