Good idea... 275 fronts are huge...
I know, just using the word to reflect feel. (Side note, if you add up the combined weight of my fronts (RAC wheels at ~20lbs and the tires) it comes out less than OEM 18s or 19s with 245s.)
It was just stark going back to a 245 front how much more feel came back through the wheel. I wish I could put the 275s out back and buy new 255 fronts but I need a 275/35 and not a 275/30.
