    10.5s will fit. your biggest problem is going to be with the tires. a 275 is going to be too small for a 10.5. the smallest you can go is a 285 but the tire is going to be extremely stretched in order to fit. I have 10" wheels in the front and I wish they were 9.5s so that my 275s fit without the slight stretching.

    What is the reason for doing this? Find a great deal on some wheels or something? IMO stretched tires are hideous and pointless. I wouldn’t go much more than 9.5 in the front personally.

    pretty sure you will have some rubbing issues. I wanted to put 295s in the front of my car and that is what I had found after research. Modification is needed to get bigger tires to fit due to turning.

    ^^^this

    It will most likely be ok in a straight line but once you turn the wheel it will probably rub pretty bad on the wheel wells, especially if youíre lowered then it will be a nightmare. I donít recommend this at al unless you modify your car for it. I honestly donít see the point in going more than a 275 up front but if this is just something you really feel is necessary then do what you gotta do. I mean really almost anything can be done with the supporting modifications, I have seen guys run 315s in all 4 corners before. Good luck with it man and keep us posted with what you do.

    at the same time bigger wheels are going to put more stress on the power steering.

    this is very true, i didnt think about that. i think i will prob just stick with the 275 on a 9.5 rim to be safe and prob a 295 or 305 out back on a 10.5 rim. prob a little hammering in the back will be needed but im not worried about that as long as its not too much. thanks for the replies guys

    i ran a 295 on a 18x10.5 and didnt have to do any hammering. with a 35th LE you may want to go that route...?
