With a non turbo car, you may want to stay with 255/275 on 9 and 11" wheels so you don't have to accelerate the heavier tires.
Yes. I was even thinking possibly 245 in front/275 rear.

Re the spacers - I am just trying to figure out my options in case I find a set of used wheels. If I go with new CCW or Lindsey, I am sure they can provide what I need.
