I have the stock 18's and recently bought 255/50R17 Nitto Invo's. I'm really happy with these tires. They are lots more sticky than the stock 235/55R17 PZero Neros.

M&H makes a 275/45/18 as a DR - that will hook!!!
I just bought some brand new Goodyear F1 GS-D3 supercars in 275/45/18 from Ebay for $360 shipped. The same seller runs that auction every few days. Paid yesterday, tracker says they'll be here Thursday!

some? 2 or 4?

it looks like to me that those could be EMT/run flat style tires, be careful as your car doesnt have the TMPS in it to know if you lose pressure. plus the stiff sidewall will hurt your straight line traction if you try to drag them at all

Yes, I think I remember seeing that they are run flats. At the rate I go...I make it to the track about once a year, so I'm not too worried about their racing performance.

As far as the run flats and lack of TPMS...Ehhhh...if I get a flat, I'll be stuck on the side of the road changing a tire either way, whether it waits xx miles to actually go flat or goes flat immediately.
