So, could I go 255/35 on a 9" and 275/35 on 10.5 or does it have to be 255/30 and 275/30...?

It should work just fine with 255/35 & 275/35.

Agreed but I would still get the 9.5" front wheel. That way the stretch will be nearly equal front and rear. In other words, the difference in width between the wheels will be 25mm while the difference in width between the tires will be 20mm. Plus the 9.5" front wheel gives you the option to go with a wider tire once you learn that 275's are a better option .

When do you expect to collect your car?

The same reason you ran them on your 18's...more grip... What does Canada have to do with it?

Took a Quick Spin Last Weekend in the Black Forest, Germany

Cruising along and you can see the frozen lake Schluchsee on the right


Passed an E90 sedan and picked up the pace a little


Finally remembered to mute my speakers and getting more serious with the driving. Sound of the V8 is intoxicating isn't it?
