I've been checking into this as well, and Nittos website shows that the minimum width for the 275's is 9 inches, our stock rims are 8. :sad: I've heard people say they they will fit, but I'm not sure I would try it if the manufacturer says not to do it. They have the 555R in our stock size, but not anything in between the 245 and 275. I figure the choices are narrowed down to either 245's on the stock rims, or buy 2 275's and rims to put on when I go to the track.
once again, i ran 275/40's on the rear of both my 97 GT (Michelin Pilots)and 99 GT (Dunlop Sport SP 5000's) with the stock 17 x 8's and never had any problems. loved them in the dry, harder to handle in bad weather(heavy rain and snow) than stock 245's cuz of the width. every tire is a little different but i think you'd be OK
(and i ran them HARD in dry weather!)
just my .02

So they will fit on the stock wheels, or are you having them mounted on different wheels?
I have a spare set of rims not the bullitt rims that are 17x8. Since so many people have put those tires ont 17x8 rims I plan to put them on my 17x8 rims. These will be my track tires.
