My car is otherwise stock, so I don't think I have the motor to make 315s worthwhile. Hence, I went for the 275s. (C'mon, how much worse do I want to get beat in the drag race across an intersection by that minivan next to me?) Realistically there are no other tire width options for these 17" wheels. I figured if I went +30mm in the rear (245-->275), then I could do the same for the front (205-->235). But it seems like the front may be better off with yet another 10 mm or so of tire width. Fortunately the 235/275 combo I'm currently running doesn't seem to be heavy at all, even at parking lot speeds.
