    So is that 245/50 ? If so which brand and where from?
    Standard is 17inch on mine, not sure if that because of the Trans-Am model or the WS6 package? They are 275/40/17. Went for 168mph speed rating this time as not expecting to go over that. The make I went for is Nankang, okay they may sound cheap, but they perform like Falken's or Avon ZZ1's that i have used both front and rear. Gave the Nankangs a corner test in the wet expecting to slide out around the roundabout, but they held, so I'm more than happy with the traction in the dry and wet.

    Nankang Ultra Sport NS-2 275/40 ZR17 98W with rim protection (MFS) - mytyres.co.uk

    I ordered 2, they came DHL from Germany free shipping, cant see how they can make a profit, but I'm happy with the savings. Prices seems to change throughout the year, could't get them for less than £100 not too long ago, so settled on 255 wide for around £80 each.

    Just re-read your post and you say you settled for 255 wide?
    Does that mean you are running 255/40x17? Or am I misreading that?

    I have just brought 275's for the rear and should really have 275 up front, but settled for 255/45/17's at the time(a year or so ago) I brought them due to cost. I like to keep some spare tires in case I cant get them at a good price when I need them, so they are stored in the spare bedroom. Do they have about a 5 year storage life?I read something like that somewhere, I'm sure I'll use them before they expire.

    I’m surprised you haven’t tripped the ABS computer.
    The front tyres have a height of 26.04” whilst the rears have a height of 25.66”
    It’s not huge but the rear tyres are effectively rotating faster than the fronts.
    Either the ABS computer is not very sensitive or doesn’t work?

    Oh and tyres should be replaced at 6 years old irrespective of wear.
    That’s according to both my Tyre guy and some reading I have done.
