Do yourself a favor, for get about the Nittos. I had 285/40 17s on the rear and they sucked. The tires were to unpredictable, sometimes they would stick and other times they felt like I was driving on powder. I would get the Potnezas ARE-730s. I currently have the G-foce tire on the rear, they both stick well. I would have went back with the Pontenza but the BFG were cheaper.
