Default 17 inch Tire Help

Looking at replacing the 17 inch tires on my Cobra.
I have a set of Kumho 285 x 40 ZR 17 on rear and 245 x 45 ZR 17 on the front.
I want 285s on the back again but biggest size I can find is 275s.
I am in Brisbane.

What 17 inch tires are people running now.
Seems like the options are becoming limited.

Check with tyresales.com.au or International Tyre Traders, they both work on a national basis as far as Im aware.

Dont like your chances - Might find some Nitto NT555 or they have a new NT555 G2 in 285\40R17. Continental extreme contact or Pirelli PZero Assemetrico seem to the be only ones on tire rack. Even searching those sizes in Ebay brings up little to no options.

Hi Bruce,

I'm running Sumitomo 245/45 17" on the front and 315/35 17" on the rear. All sourced from Tire Rack a few years ago.
