Got a flat tire and can't get the right size...

I'm looking all over the place, and can't find the right size S03 tire (235/40/18). Both my rears (one w/ a flat) need to be replaced so I wanted to put two used tires on to get me through the rest of the season and then replace them all in the spring. Can I go w/ a stagered setup? Any suggestions? Right now I have 235 all around.

We'll need to see your wheel width/offset to see if you can stagger.

Unless the offset is pretty far off, should be ok to use 255/35R18 rear.
