I can't find any tyres in that size and in stock googling around - which is unsurprising and no doubt you've tried!

What about a nearsize tyre?

This is from: https://tiresize.com/calculator/
Size		Diameter	Width	Wheel
215/55R18	-2.8%  27.3"	8.5"	18 x 6-7.5"
235/50R18	-2.8%  27.3"	9.3"	18 x 6.5-8.5"
295/40R18	-2.8%  27.3"	11.6"	18 x 10-11.5"
265/45R18	-2.5%  27.4"	10.4"	18 x 8.5-10"
345/35R18	-2.1%  27.5"	13.6"	18 x 11.5-13.5"
245/50R18	-1.8%  27.6"	9.6"	18 x 7-8.5"
305/40R18	-1.8%  27.6"	12.0"	18 x 10-12"
225/55R18	-1.4%  27.7"	8.9"	18 x 6-8"
275/45R18	-1.4%  27.7"	10.8"	18 x 8.5-10.5"
315/40R18	-0.7%  27.9"	12.4"	18 x 10.5-12.5"
255/50R18	-0.4%  28"	10.0"	18 x 7-9"
285/45R18	Equal  28.1"	11.2"	18 x 9-10.5"
235/55R18	+0.4%  28.2"	9.3"	18 x 6.5-8.5"
155/85R18	+1.1%  28.4"	6.1"	18"
265/50R18	+1.1%  28.4"	10.4"	18"
295/45R18	+1.4%  28.5"	11.6"	18 x 9.5-11"
225/60R18	+1.8%  28.6"	8.9"	18 x 6-8"
245/55R18	+1.8%  28.6"	9.6"	18 x 7-8.5"
305/45R18	+2.5%  28.8"	12.0"	18 x 9.5-11.5"
Of course not all tyres will be in production, but there are some that are close to what could be used without loosing speedo inaccuracy or affecting the vehicle too much.
Oldies: 1972 Austin 1100 2dr - Project Rust bucket, 1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
Moderns: 2000 Boxster - New enough to drive sublimely but old enough to nearly feel like a classic, 2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying.

That's a really odd size, and in past experience Pirelli only runs off odd sizes like this in batches, so can be on back order for months, and sometimes never arrive. I'd be going down to 40 profile, or even 35 which are much more common. What car is it?

They're probably for something totally un-Autoshite given the dimensions. What's the shame in mention what it's for? :D.

Time for some new wheels in a sensible size that allows tyres that are actually for sale.

My 92 Corvette ran 275 40 17's, older models tend to be smaller diameter, newer ones lower profile. I assumed X5 etc

Wasn't there something about an Michelin experimental sized rim on those or RR or both?

You can buy* some Y rated on ATS euromaster (drive slower and invalidate insurance?). Just spend £1600 odd quid only for a call on Monday saying computer says no and 'refund in 7 working days M9' etc...
