Thank you sir. I'll order the 265/35 which is about as close to the stock diameter as I can get with these rims and avail tire sizing.

Yep. The 265 Star spec on an 18x9 actually is closer to 270mm. My Star Specs are 255mm's across on my stock rim.

Tried them in the rain yet? That's one thing we know in Seattle, it's going to rain and it's going to do it sooner than later

Yes I have! The Star Specs have great dry grip but they're not the best tire in the rain. The best all around tire, I hear, is the Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

Oh well, the stock Dunlop's suck in the rain too so if I'm lucky maybe I can get by on the Star specs till Dec.
