Default wal mart wont install my tires?

hello im new i just purchased a used 2007 is350 and i needed new tires. so i got some at walmart. But they are saying,"WARNING: For safety reasons, Wal-Mart will not install tires with a load index below that of your vehicle's Original Equipment (OE) tires. Please make sure that the tires you select meet the load index requirements for your vehicle."

the tires are Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3.

Does anyone happen to know the load index of oem tires. I have Dunlap sports on right now i don't think they are oem.

90 or 91 front and 95 rear is the load index for the OE tires.

The Dunlop SP Sport Maxx came stock with the 18" wheel option I believe.

225/40-18 88Y
245/40-18 95Y

You're in good shape, the F1 GS-D3 meets or exceeds the original equipment load index for both the 17" staggered set up and 18" staggered set up.
