    Need some new rear tires

    i just ordered some 17x9.5 ZR1 rims for the rear to match the front and i was wondering what would be a good all round tire for the rear, so far i have been looking at the Fuzion Zri tires and the pirelli PZero Nero tires.
    This is a daily driven car and it probably won't see the track much and i also live in a city that gets every kind of weather so i need some good traction tires.
    Also what size goes in the back is it 275/40-17 or is it something else?

    I have 17x9.5 wheels all around as of right now also and I use 275/40/17 BFG gForce KDWS tires and I'm extremely happy with all aspects of the tire.

    Picking a tire has alot to do with weather as you are probably aware of. If you live in a sunshine state, you wouldn't need a tire that is good in the snow, such as the KDWS. I purchased mine when I was living in Chicago. KDW NT's are Awesome looking and very good tires for dry and wet environments.

    Aside from that, money is probably the next biggest thing, or maybe even the biggest thing that determines what tires a person purchases. Only you know how fat your wallet is.....

    I have 17x9.5's ZR1's all the way around and I like em. I have run BFG KDWS and the Goodyear eagle f1's gs-d3's. I like the look of the goodyears but I admit I like the BFG's on the street and the track for the traction I got.
