275s will work on a 9 or 9.5" wheel (some have gone bigger, but you really need to be careful with offset, drop, and bulge). If you call or go online to tire rack, you will be able to get a very good idea of your options.

Long story short I bought my wheels and tires from them after a local shop failed a few times. Tire Rack guaranteed the fit and the price was right.

Good luck

I had 255/45/17 with 9.5" and a 4.5 0ffset on the rear and had to cut the inner fender well and trim and massage the inner quarter some too. Still rubbed on bumps and turns anyway. Now I have the same tires on new set of us mag 8" wheels and you can't tell the difference by looking and they never rub. Maybe with a different offset.:confused:
