Ok, after doing hours of research, and not wanting to be stuck with Goodyear tires with 220 tread rating, I think I have found a good substitute.

Toyo makes same size tires for the rear, and have a 19" tire that is only 2.48 % bigger, which is acceptable. Tire size is 275/45/19.

The tread ratings for these tires is 420, almost twice the treadware of the Goodyear tires.

The tire is Toyo, Proxes S/T. Anyone agree or disagree?

Thanks

Will the Toyo tires stick as well as the goodyears? (Usually the higher the tread wear, the harder the tire, the less stick it has, right?)
