I have a stock 01 cobra with stock rims. My question is can you put 245/45/17 on the front and 275/40/17 on the back. Curious if anyone else has this set up. Thinking of going with nitto 555

The front will be ok. The rears youll need at least a 9" wide rim for the 275/40s.

A nitto 275/40 drag radial will go onto the 17x8in wheel. It fits perfectly. The 275 nitto drag looks like it was designed for the 8in wheel.

Does Nitto rate that tire for an 8" rim? Most mfgs require a 9" rim for a low profile 275. It might "fit" but it probably wasn't designed for it.
