Can't wait.
With the 18x10 on the rear I would suggest the 285/40. Thats what I used on my 18x9.5 and they fit really well. I wish they made a 295/40, the 295/45 is a bit too tall for my liking.

There's nothing wrong with being stupid as long as you know you're stupid, it's when you're stupid and don't know it that you become dangerous.

Falken makes a couple of tires in 295/40/18 sizing but I also like the 285/40's better for the simple fact that size has a better selection of available tires.

I ran the 295/40-18 Falken on my GTO. Great tires. Ran 255/40 in the front. The fronts balanced without any weight and the rears needed like .25 oz...Super impressed by that.

I already paid for the 275's.... But who am I kidding they won't last long.

Re: I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on these wheels.

I run 285/40 on my X9.5s - I think its just a tad too much sidewall. Id like to run 285/35 all the way around.

Bolt your rear wheels & tires on the front and test the fit.
