    I need front tires

    they need to fit a 17X9.5, and hopefully not crazy expensive, hoping to stay under $175 each. the size im needing is a 275/45/17.

    On the rear I have 295/35/18, and im trying to stay close in size, 265/45/17 is closest, but nothing is available in that size, the 275/45/17s are next closest.....so yeah, any suggestions would be great.

    Remember, these are front tires, not rear, nothing special.

    I hopped on tirerack, and they dont have any tires in that size. . . why dont you want the stock size of 275/40/17?
    G Force A/S and General Exclaims are in the stock size are both $129 each. . . I've had descent experiences with both.

    If I my fronts and backs are too far apart in diameter, wont it set off my ASR?

    I just want my fronts to match my backs, which are like, 26.12" overall, whatever 295/35 is

    Yes it will. I forget how much difference you are allotted, but there is a thread in here about this that I replied in at one time stating what the diameter difference was.

    Well I need to find out somehow, lol, but 275/40s are within an inch, I'd think that's fine

    On ABS-equipped vehicles, all vehicle manufacturers recommend using the same size and aspect ratio tire as the original. ABS systems monitor the rotational speed of the tires through individual wheel speed sensors. Changing to an oversize tire with a taller diameter than stock would cause the tires to rotate at a slightly slower speed relative to vehicle speed than the stock tires. Changing to a low profile tire with a shorter diameter would cause the tires to rotate at a slightly faster speed relative to vehicle speed. Though the difference either way isn't much, it may be enough to upset the calibration of the ABS system and have an adverse effect on its ability to detect and prevent skids.

    Another reason for not changing tire sizes is because it can affect the speedometer, odometer and transmission shift points on a vehicle with an electronic automatic. Oversize tires will make your speedometer read slower than normal (which may get you a speeding ticket unless you have the speedometer recalibrated to compensate for the change in tire size!). Smaller diameter tires will make the speedometer read faster than normal, and increase the mileage readings on your odometer at a faster than normal rate.

    I believe the overall tire height cannot be more than a 3% difference from front to rear.

    yeah im pretty sure Im within 3% of original...i know its not setting off the 1010tire.com calculator, and if i go with 275/40s, ill be within like, a 1/2" of each other.

    I'm getting tuned soon, and ill see about a correction.
