255/40-17
Plus One
225/40-18

I would think the width of your rim would be a big factor

I am looking to run 275/40/17 in the rear just to give it that hot rod look. Has anyone seen this?

For the rear these would work, the PT has humogous wheel wells ! But it wil lift your car's backside and I'm afraid it will stick out too. And if your car is lowered it will not work, they will rub.

ATM I 've got 225/45 17 on 8" wide rimms with ET 35 and my wheel is flush with the fender. So your ET has something to say about it too.
