Nope wont rub at all

Are these rims 17x8 or 17x9?

If they are 8 wide the 275's will look kinda funny on a 8 inch wide rim

it shouldn't be a problem. If it is, it will only be at FULL lock.

a 275 on a 8" rim will wear faster than a 245 on a 8" of the same tire

so if you want to rotate your wheels then go with 245 /? i mean i love the way wide tires look in the back, but would also like the avantage of rotating the wheels as well

I would definitely suggest same tire sizes all the way around. It prolongs the life of your tire by a good bit, and think about it, 10 cm is not going to be THAT big of a change in the stance.

yeah me too love the look but you will have to buy the back often if your a heavy foot. about every 5 mon. for me. but as long as everything is ok in front the dont wear a whole lot and you can bust the tire and change them on rims if they do.. caost about 15. i dont mind buying tires every 5 mon. plus you could ge with a tire that will lose tread slower than g forces.

a 275 on an 8 wide will work but they kind of bulge and of course wear bad... but just buy 245s next go around, and a 275 out back wont look to bad for a while.

245s on a 9 wide is something you dont want to do however.
