PSS: 275-35-18 on stock rear wheels

Currently, I have PS2 (245/40 18 and 265/40/18).. Rear tires are pretty worn out and I want to replace them with PSS... Now, 265/40/18 is availiable for PSS but the price is a bit higher than 275/35/18..... This should work without any negative effects right?
Thanks in adv

275/35/18 has too small a rolling diameter. You want 275/40/18. It will be 8mm larger than stock. A 275/35/18 is 19.5mm less than stock.

Thanks for letting me know . For some reason, few people think it would be OK.. It's unfortunate that PSS doesn't have 275/40/18

275/35R19 will be fine. A lot of people run that. I have been using it since August.
