    Thanks for coming back to me. Having checked with Michelin in the UK whilst they can supply the super sport unfortunately the size 275/45/18 is not available in this country!!

    It seems to be the case for France and Holland too: not available (anymore)

    Its difficult to find tires for the OEM wheel. Out of that list I would go with the Conti but thats just because I really don't care for most Pirelli tires, especially PZero.
