Hello everyone. I upgraded my C5 wheels and tires to Z06 sizes and used the eagle F1 supercar tires. When I wore out the rears I got lucky and found two brand new ones for sale privately cheap. Now the fronts are shot, and the size that I need,265/40/17, are $325 from Tire rack. And no other tires from ant other brand are made in that size. I would like to stay close to the Z06 size front, any ideas. And I recall that a 275/35 would fit also, if anyone could confirm that? Thank you all

A little late, but Toyo makes a 265/40/17 for the Z06 wheel. $185 each.
