tires

hey guys the guy at the tire store is telling me this:
"275/35/18, only on the rear, front you can't use 275/35/18"
This is for 18x9 rims by the way, Is this true or is he loco?

Edit: oh yeah and what is the difference between Kumho MX and Kumho 712

275/30/18 or 265/30-18 tires are the best fitment for 18x9

I don't see wy those would not work however on the front

265/35/18 is the right fit for an 18x9 a 275 would be better for the width but 265 fits better all around so just go with that and DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT go kumo GO yokahoma avs es100s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

also www.tirerack.com will most likly get you the tires cheaper, add on 35 bucks for shipping over the price and NO taxes... remember taxes add up a good bit if they dont factor those in on your tires at a local store.

just get the yokohamas, you will end up spending more when you buy some pierces of crap and you have to replace them very often.
