275s

Anybody running 275s on the front of their car? How do you like them? Does the car handle better? I have 255s now but it's time for some new rubber so I figure id go bigger for the look.

Been running it for years. Only downside is they will grab grooves in the road alot more

I won't mind that. Did it improve handling at all?

I'm running them with Nitto 555R's all around and love them, handles the curves great but like lowflyn said it grabs them cracks hard and it will surprise the **** out of you the first time and if your not expecting it

275's for a 9 wide rim work great, they may rub on the front (9 wide rims with front spacing around 3 inches may hit front sway bar a bit) but will work fine, 03/04 cobras run them OEM but they have steering rack limiters to prevent the rub
