I have to replace my rear tires and figured that I might as well go bigger. I'm not looking to replace the wheels because I happy with the stock 17's. Well enough with the
Will 275/40/17 fit on the stock rear rim? I'm thinking of going with 245/45/17 on the front and I have read where they will be fine, but I'm just not sure on the rears.
Also are the Hancook HR405 tires any good? I actually try to drive my car and am not looking to slide off the side of a mountain. This is the deal I'm looking at

Thanks for the help and as always,
Jeff

They might be able to cram that 275 on that size rim, but it's well beyond what the tire manufacturer would recommend. I personally wouldn't do it.

I'm running the following and there's definitely lots of room for 19's:

Front: 245/40ZR-18 93W
Rear: 275/40ZR-18 103W

I'm running 245/35/19 and 275/35/19. At stock height, you shouldn't have a problem with the 255/285 setup.
