285/35/18 on the back?

The Z in in hibernation for the winter, but planning on some new tires next year when she comes out...Right now I have 275 35 17 Nitto NT555 (non DR) on the front and Mickeys on the rear...was originally going to replace all 4 with stock size all seasons, but since the Nittos arent as bad in chilly weather as I thought and nearly new, just replacing the rears. Cant find stock size but they do have 285s. I generally dont care to go down in size, but this doesnt seem too extreme. Anyone see any reason to not go this route?

I run the Nitto nt555's on all four corners, 275/35/18's up front and 285/35/18's in the rear, i love these tires and they hook better than the Firestone's and Hancook's i've had. I don't believe you'll really notice a different
