    245/45-17 and 285/35-18 both are 25.7" tall and it's what i have on both of my cars.

    now, you say that the fronts are 9.5" wide. if that is the case, then go with a 275/40-17 on the front if you want the widest tire on the front as well.
    Cold Air Intake, Muffler Delete, Vinci High Performance Dual Valve Springs, Hardened Pushrods, Yella Terra 1.85 Rockers, Some Hydropdipped Stuff, Strut Tower Brace, Some SS Badges, boost/vacuum gauge, fuel pressure gauge

    Thanks again bro I put them on last night and no rubbing.
    I went with what u said plus thats the size tires my bro already had. The sizes were245/45/17 up front and 285/38/18. So far feels fine only got to 70 on highway and juast a tad of vibration on braking.

    glad to have helped out.

    the shaking while braking will most likely be warped rotors.
