    More tire Questions!!

    Need a bit of help on buying tires. I have 17x9 rims with 245/45/17's on now. Would like to go a bit wider (275/40/17), but was wondering if I could have two different sizes on front/back. Would that look good and does it cause any problems for the car? Or should i jsut keep with the same sizes front and back?

    Thanks for the help.

    Well I have 275's all around ... I started with 275 on the back and 245 up front but after time didnt like the way it looked. I like the look of big/ wide tires all the way around, guess it just what you like! Dont have any problems turn the wheels ......

    The only problem you will run into is rotating the tires for even where. Most of the better performance tires are directional so you cant just rotate side to side it has to be front to back.

    shouldn't have any problem... unless the backspacing on your rims are out of whack.
    275/40-17 are meant to be installed on wheels of 17x9 to 17x11
    So there is no issue there.
