    Tire size question

    I did a little more research and found my answer i think... I'd need 245/45/17s according to tire rack. I hope I'm wrong, can anyone confirm?

    Got a great deal for 275/40/zr17 tires for my stock WS6 17x9 wheels
    But I'm considering getting the 17x9.5 TTIIs, will this tire still fit those and look right or do I need a different size tire?
    Will it still go past the edge of the rim and look nice, will it seal properly?

    A 275 will work fine on a 9.5" wheel.

    should i get the 17x11 rears? i was kinda thinking keep 17x9.5 all the way around so i could at least rotate front to back, could always save the 2 extra tires for the front

    The reason I went with the 17x11 for the back was because of the power I make. Had to get wide to hook it up on the street.
    I run Nitto DR's all the time on the back just to keep the car able to go WOT on the street.
