275/45r18

Got an 06 Must GT, wondering if i can fit a 275/45R18 on the front without any rubbing probs.... i know the height will work, but i'm wondering if ill have problems with the width .... anyone tried this before?

In my opinion that is a TALL sidewall for that width tire, at most I'd think go with 40.. I don't know 100% for certain but I'd bet the width would fit, if it did, it'd be TIGHT, like no clearance at all.. maybe a little rubbing or scrubbing involved -- Edit - if you're lowered, I wouldn't go wider than 255 in front, but that's just me

your right on the height, it will have to be a 40series... it is lowered and i have a 255 45 on it now.... im trying to remember what the GT500 runs on the front from the factory

45 is fine on 255s, I'd think too tall for 275s - The GT500 runs 255/45s in front and 285/40s out back - I'm running 255/45s up front and 305/35 in back.. plenty of extra clearance in back, I'm not planning on going wider up front
