Since the 255 series are in extreme short supply in North America (at the time I bought the tires), my tire shop advised me I can go 265 which has the identical spec for the front anyway and by going square, the 265 will have no issue for the rear.

Lastly, I am not a fan of Pirelli. My second choice would have been Bridgestone LM60 (but this is only H rated tire)
Has you or anyone here had Blizzaks - I see those available in 255. Ive only had Dunlops so far and was happy with them.
