255/45-17 on '05 GT Wheels?

Will 255/45's fit on the factory 17x8 '05 Bullit style wheels? I'm guessing a 275/45 would be a little too big for an 8" wheel too? If I do 9" wheels, will a 275/45 fit on the front? Is this too many questions for one post

yup it will fit the rim, the car on the other hand I think it will but you should check, its 10 more mm, which is not even half an inch, which in turn is not even a quarter of a inch per side.

An inch is 25.4 mm or there about~ and every tire brand runs different, a 255 from one brand may be MUCH wider than another.

Thanks! Choosing rims and tires is very confusing for this car, and I'm trying to play with rear tire height to change the effective rear gearing a little bit too. Looks like the most cost effective swap right now is the GT takeoffs from Saleen, then get new tires later on. At least I know the wheels were made for the car!
