I'm running 265-35-18's all the way around and it looks great. Personally I like the look of a 275 all the way around, but they were more money, and sometimes you'll have rubbing issues.
In a 17 you'd be looking at 255's or 275's. You can run smaller or larger, but those seem to fit the best, and look the best.2005 GT/07 GT500 powertrain swap

Agreed. In five months on the street I toasted a stock differencial with Nitto DR's on my GT, 245/50's. Those tires were awesome. With normal tires I could launch in second and spin them hard, and keep them burning into third; but with the 555DR's Launching in first I was lucky to chirp second. Hook like mad, corner like a road course tire, and no worse in the rain than any other tire I've used. According to my Gtech they shaved .5 off my 1/4 too, over the Nitto 450 Extremes I used to run.

With my old factory Cobra rims I had Nitto DR 275/40/17. They cleared my lowered car and hooked pretty good.

I got the Toyo TR1 245/40/18 and 275/35/18. Wish I would have gone with a 285 on rear. Theres room and with 9.5" rims the tire looks a little bit small. O well Im sure Ill burn them off next summer.
