New tires

Ordered my tires at my dealer today, Michelin Pilot Sport 2s in normal 18 inch sizes. Dealer was worried about putting 280/30R18s on because it's a C4 and it's apparently picky about tire diameters. He was afraid my warranty company would use it as an excuse not to pay if anything went wrong so I reckon, screw it. I'm looking to track the car this year so the 280s would have been nice, a little extra insurance but it's not like the thing is short on grip anyway. So, Thursday I'll bring the car up and they'll do the tires and adjust suspension etc. Total cost is around 1500 dollars. Tirerack + 15% + mounting + balancing + suspension adjustments.
