"If you need only new rear tires, then buy what you have on the front to match."

Trust me I tried, apparently locating the continentals I needed to match my fronts was near impossible. Many a failed google searches and dealers that couldn't get them. I actually think they stopped making them in the 18 inch size I needed. 265 40 R18

I went with Michellins which was about ALL i came across. So with that said, I have the mich rears and the car feels already AMAZINGLY better.

All this being said, if possible I would love to downgrade to a 16 inch rim and put on some blizzaks. I looked into 17 inch packages and the size they recommend is light on options as well. 16 would also be considerably less than what I had to shell out for the 18 inchers....OUCH
