    Finally found a local tire dealer willing to order the Continentals. The "All-Season" version seems to pop up first when tire dealers perform a search. Was on the verge of using Tire Rack & having them delivered to my house. Hopefully this project will be completed by next week.

    Part # 15506480000 = 235/45-17
    Part # 15506550000 = 255/45-17

    Thanks everyone. I will provide feedback after they arrive.

    ~JM~,
    While the wheels and tires are off and dismounted is a good time to measure the wheel width and backspacing so you know exactly what you have.

    Yes. I removed the wheels & measured yesterday. It looks like 4" back space. Rubber is still mounted at this time.
