Should be no problem.
Maybe some others with an AWD STS can confirm.

I originally had "staggered" size OEM Michelins.
Then went to 255/45/18 all the way around.
Now I have 255/45/18 in front & 275/40/18 in the rear.
I intend on having 275/40/18 in the front later when the current tires need replacing.

How does that look and ride with the Stagg fitment? I just sold 20s that I had on the car becuase of how bad the ride was with a 35 series tire. I want to make sure I keep the ride as good as it is now with the 235x50 18, but I want to go with a wider or stag fitment tire as these dont look all that great. Thanks for the help.

I debated 255/45R18 and 235/50R18. I'm happy with the Continental DWS 235's all around. I value a quiet softer ride and poor weather performance.

Yes. That's what I run. Continental DWS.

I've replaced the staggered tires with 245/50/18. I'm very happy regarding comfort, handling and looks.

I went 255/45/18 all around for the winter wheels.

Just last week, I had a new set of Michelin HXMX4 Pilot P235/50R18 tires put on ALL 4 WHEELS. They were dealer installed and now I can rotate the tires and hopefully get another hundred miles from them. Unless you are driving over a 2-lane mountain road at 140+mph, you will never notice the difference. Also, road noise is still unnoticeable.
