    tire size stock rims

    i have the stock 17x9 ws6 rims. i was thinking of staying with stock size tires in the back or possibly going to 285/40r17. I was wondering though if I wanted to save a few pounds and also dollars and go to 245/45r17 in front would it look too narrow? tire rack says its for 7.5"-9" rims. Anyone have any pics or info?

    Most people will tell you to stick with the 275's in the front
    Also if you keep them all the same size then you can rotate.

    oh arright. just wanted to get some opinions on how it would look and handle but I def want the staggered look so if I stay with 275 front i still want the 285 rear.
