    What do you mean by "best"? What are your plans for the car? Autocross? Drag racing? Show?

    I like 17 inch rims cause it still has room for enough sidewall but a 275 is probably as wide as you can get safely and probably a 40 on height. Some people run 18's/19's and 20's too it depends what you want to use the car for.

    Sorry for any confusion, what I meant was whats the best size to run on the front? I want to run a wider tire in the rear but I kinda want to run the same size front and back so i can rotate!

    To be able to rotate then you could run a 275 that would be perfect, anything biggger would probably be to big for the front. A 9inch wide is probably the widest you could run up front.

    I am running 18x10 and 18x11 in the rear. If you really want to go wider in the rear its going to be difficult to run the same size up front. I am running 275s up front and 315s in the rear.

    Been as wide as 265/45 Auto-x on the front..

    That was plenty wide. I agree with the others on wider out back and not so much on the front.
