    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.

    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.
