05 Boxster, 18" rim will this size tire fit?275/40ZR18

I might be able to get a deal with Bridgestone.
I might get some Potenza's S-02
They have for the front the same size as the Boxster OEM 235/40/18
For the rear either 265/35/18 or 275/40/18

Which tire size would be better to pick for the rear?

Are these tires any good?

I think they are discontinuing that tire for an updated version. I might be wrong but it makes sense if they are cutting prices. Something to think about in the event that you have to replace the rears and they no longer match the fronts.
