    Are you asking if you can run a 275 40 18 or 275 45 18? IF it is yes you can i would say probably go with 275/40 or 275/35 if you are running 18s

    Front or back? Or both?

    Why do you want a taller/wider tire?

    you need a 35 series tire on 18" wheels or else your speedometer will be off like crazy, i know because i have 40 series tires right now and will be going down to a 35 series tire soon.

    that tire will be way too small of a width, it will offer no curb protection...IMO, i would go with 275/35/18s all the way around if i was you...

    Why not use the recommended tire size? Who is paying for it, you or your dad? If your dad is paying, then guess what...

    245/45/18 will fit an 18X9 rim.....they will fit, but i wouldn't consider it a proper fit.
