    315's but its better to go with a wider rim, and if you do so, the inner fender wells will need a bit of persuasion

    I would had some 285's on the back of my car with no problem. I have 18x9.5 rims though that is only a 1/4 of an in wider per side. that Isn't much. I was going to go with some 295's next time but I am getting rid of the rims.

    Welcome to the board, fellow Canuck !
    on stock wheel, 17x9" you should not go wider than 275/40-17
    note that 275/40-17 is meant to be installed in a rim width of 9.0-11.0
    for instance a 315/35-17 is meant to be installed in a rim 11.0-13.0

    Unless you don't want the tire to be properly mounted, I'd stick w/ 275s.
    If you want to go wider... get a wider wheel... I love wide too

    it really depends on the offsets.
    in the rear you can fit a wheel upto 11" with nothing much to do... while in the front you can fit a 12" wheel without any mods.
    It really depends on the offset.

    I have 17x11 on all corners and i can rotate
