Your thought process is correct. Plenty of ppl run 275s up front. Like I said I have 285s up front on the Steeda car I bought and that size is what it came with originally.
2000 Mustang GT Steeda #0048 34k miles. 99 Cobra 4V swapped, FTBR IRS swapped, exhaust, tuned by James Gordon.
Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
