275 will fit... I had Falken PT722 (275/40/19) on all four corners with RTR wheels until last week. My car is lowered as well with Steeda sports. There was a slight rub when I would make a tight u-turn but otherwise I never rubbed.

I got new wheels last week and now I'm running Hankook Ventus V12 tires.. 255/40/19 in front and 285/35/19 in rear. Its a daily driver and I have to say the Hankooks are so much better. I definitely recommend them.

I've had very good performance and wear with the Pirelli's. I currently have 38K on them, and the wear indicator is still below the tread groove. I'm estimating I can go another 10K on them.
I have been religious in rotating them every ten thousand, and I check the air pressure every weekend when it gets it's bath.

so if I move my 275 to the front it shouldn't be a problem?

They should be ok like he said they will only rub a little when you make a tight turn

I would not put the 275's up front. I have 275's in the rear and I wouldn't go bigger than that on these rims. The 275's will handle worse if you mount them up front.

Thanks for the Info Bucko, this backs up my assumption I could get 45-48K out of the P-Nero summer tires. My dealer said I should be on a 5K rotation and they did the first one at the 3.5K first oil change and said 5K after that each time.

After breakin' I wanted the shavings out of the motor least at 3K but due to work issues had to wait 500 miles more.

why go 275 up front? do you road race or autox?

#1, taller sidewall - more flex.
#2, not ideal size wheel for a 275 - more bulge
#3, larger front tires are worse in the rain and track more on uneven roads.

you also dont really want to mix & match tires. if you can find a mixed set that has around equal performance capabilities, etc (similar treadwear # doesnt meant anything), then thats ok...but if not and you have ok tires up front and great tires out back or vice versa...things could get real hairy when you get in a spot.

I have a lot of tire knowledge (worked for Discount Tire Corporate for years), but I dont know anything about either of those tires. my only hoosier experience is with their drag slicks and road race tires. And never a general tire. Is there an issue with you getting the matching pair of Falkens?
