New tires...

Woke up this morning to a low tire warning and sure enough there is a screw in the right rear tire very close to the wall of the tire. Bottom line is it likely can't be patched. I like the Michelin tires that came with the car so will simply replace but the 265/35 rear tires seem a bit stretched. Can I go with 275 width tires in the rear so they don't look so stretched?

No problem, in fact you can do it on all four corners.

I just put super sport 275/35 and 255/35 on my stock 19s yesterday and love it. Not only is slightly wider but wall sits higher so it looks like car is lowered. Pretty dramatic.

Stock size PZero's are the wide, really wide. They look like an upsize tire and you're rolling diameter remains the same.
