ML55 tire options

I'm not finding any 285/50/18s available now. Has anyone found tires for their ML55 lately?

275/55/18 or 255/55/18?

Both are very close to the original diameter of the 285/50/18. 255 is .6% smaller and the 275 is 2.3% taller.
I am wondering if the 275/55/18 may be a bit tall and tipsy on the heavy W163.
