    I have 17x9 03/04 cobra rims on H&R SS and have 275/40 in the back and 255/40 in the front and I wouldnt go any bigger in the front. So far its pretty good. Always could go wider in the rear but 275/40 arnt too bad.

    IF you want the sidewall to be the same, get a 245 45 R 17.

    END OF STORY. a 245 40 R 17 is going to look STRETCHED on a 17 x9.

    I have 275-40-17's up front on 9" rims & they look great...not stretched at all. Also have the 315-35's on 10.5" DD rims in the back no rubbing issues there. The front will just kiss the bigger Eibach sway bar in front at full lock on the right side only ...not an issue at all. Oh yeah the car car is lowered 1.5" with the full Eibach kit.
