Default Tires for the Wheels

Well guys I have 17*9 up front FR500's, and 17*10.5 in the rear. 315/35 in the back, but sad to say 245/45 up front. I don't like thelook up front. I'd like to put a larger tire on the front, but don't want to go too large. For a 17*9 tire it says a 275/40 is the best fit. I've heard people say that 275\40 is to large a tire up front. If I'm not mistaken don't the Cobra's come with 275's all the way around. If 275 is to large then what is the next size down. Any help is appreciated. Oh and on a side note...... the GEARS are on the way :-). 373's..... yeah I know I know.... 410's or 430's. Tire advise please guys.

I'm running 17x9's all the way around with 275/40/17 tires and absolutely no clearance, rubbing at all.
