Tires and size!

I got a set of fr500s and I can't decide what to put on em. I was thinking nitto 555r drags 315x35x17 on the back and 275x40x17 just Normal nittos on the front? Wat you guys think?

I have 17x10.5 rims on the back of my mustang with nitto nt555s. I think they're a great all around tire

17x9 = 275/40/17
17x10 = 295/40/17 or 305/35/17

if the tire runs narrow you can bump the back up to a 315 if you wish
