New Tires for M6 Gran Coupe recommendations?

Hi guys! My Stock P-Zero tires are beginning to wear out in the rears and I am thinking of getting 4 new tires... I was hoping you guys had some recommendations I am open to getting wider tires if you guys think it will help with traction and or performance? Thanks in advance.

Wouldn't 275 and 305 have bulging issues? Possibly cause problems with ABS? Thanks for the feedback guys!

There are plenty of pictures on here of people running 275 and 305 tyres on stock wheels and they look fine, they are also still within Michelin's recommendations, in fact 9.5" is their measured rim width for 275's

Click on the Specs tab.

As the rolling radius is still very similar the ABS and traction systems won't notice.

I can confirm they are fine since I have installed both of them on my car .
I used to have 305 on rear and have 275 on front now.
