Tire size for my shelby

Hello,

I have a 2008 Shelby GT500 with the stock 18inch wheels. My baby needs new shoes but I am not liking my options for the stock offset size.

Does anyone know if I can put 275/40/18 all the way around? I am worried it might rub in front. If I go the same all the way around then I get the extra benefit of tire rotation!

The stock size is 255/55/18 in front and 285/40/18 out the back.

Thanks all,
Erik

Staggered looks good but 18 inch tires in a true staggered fit have very limited choices. I've found a few 275 wide options in eBay.
