    275s are wider than 245s

    Your current tires are around 24.6" in diameter(depending on brand) and the 275/40/18 tires would be 26.5" in diameter(depending on brand). Your speedo will be off some.

    should have went 275/35-18. those are the stock height of 25.7" tall and won't affect the speedo, as mentioned in the sticky.

    if you read the sticky, you would see the 275/40-18 is not on the list of tire size equivalents.

    275/40-18 = 26.6" tall
    275/35-18 - 25.7" tall

    so, about an inch off. rough guess is going to be about 5 mph off.

    OE tire size from the factory is 245/50-16 not 45. someone may have put 245/45-16 on the wheels to have a shorter tire on it.

    I got the same wheels you got, 4 zo6 18 x 9.5's. The rear bump stop on mine with tires on rubbed, but it did not rub the metal on the bump stop, it has like a foam coating on the end I just took a rasp and took that shit off and it was fine.
