You have ALOT of transmission codes. Most of them could be related to one or 2 sensor failure OR module OR you have transmission problem.

Your new filter wont last as long as it will fill up fast with dirt. As long as the outside dimensions are the same the thickness will just differ in the amount of surface area filtered.

What is your concern? rubbing? or tire size?

17 x 9 +26 is just fine. 255/40/17 will also be fine. In fact I am sure that is factory set up size.
