i could never find anything bigger than 255 for the rears and i work for a big tire retailer....

i always change my own tires, so just keep an eye on the guys doing it and make sure they torque it properly......using a torque wrench

a lot of shops just throw them on there with a impact gun and it could cost you down the road(i.e. cross threaded studs, etc..)...

the torque on our cars is 76ft/lbs i believe, not a whole lot......

good luck

I had that happen to friend too. Thats why I'm never more then 10 feet away when they work on any car that I bring in. Offtopic, but I had another buddy of mine go in for an alignment. He pulled in with half a tank of gas, when he pulled out he notcied that it was at 1/4. Probably redlined the shit out of it during the test dirve.

dunlops sp9000 sports 275 and pilot sports for the front 245. They are a lot quiter than I thought they would be and they grip enough for an NA. The sizes you listed are perfect for 18x9 and 18x10 set up. you could go to 285 if you want.
