What style wheel do you have? I ask that because appearance varries with the size and thickness of the amount of visible metal on the wheel . Smaller "5 stars" will look different that thicker ones, just like wearing verticle stripes make someone look taller and slimmer. I all works together to create the image perceived by the eye. Not trying to be an A.Hole, this would just help me get a better idea.

255/45/17s have a larger overall diameter than 245/45/17 and 275/40/17 causing your car to lean back slightly. If you ask me it's rather unsightly to have a taller tire in the front than the back. It's not a front wheel drive.

I vote for 275/40/17
