Boy, I have done a fair amount of research here and cannot find out if you have a 7" or 8" wheel, but guessing 8". You have 235/55/17 tires and you will not be able to run as wide as a 275 on your existing wheels. I see a 245/50/17" wheel that will fit either a 7" or 8" wheel, so that is an option.
The only way to run a 275 is purchase wider wheels. You can see your basic max size options near the top of this page.
As for different size tires on wheels, there is really not a whole lot of variable and retain a proper fitment. More often than not, one puts too wide a tire for a wheel and can result in poor turn-in response in the least and major safety concerns in the extreme.
