17 inch rim tire size question

I currently have 245 45 17 all around if I put 275 40 17 in the back will it rub if I do not get the fenders rolled?

That depends on the offset of the wheel, you may need to remove the quad shock for some more clearance. It's about an inch and a quarter wider I attached a picture comparing the 2 sizes side by side.

I have 275/40/17 on a 10" wheel. Lowered convertible and still no rubbing. However, I did have to remove the quad shocks and "massage" the inner wheel wells with a BF hammer. The inside of tire does contact exhaust occasionally, but I have stock axle back. The outside of the tire does not contact the fender because it is tucked inside

Thanx for your info I found out apparently have bigger problems to worry about first unfortunately the vehicle I bought hadn't been started in very long time because of fuel pump problem and my friend is a Master Mechanic and got the fuel pump running very quickly but we soon found out something is making the roller rockers stick or something like that so now I have to wait till he has time to figure out how bad it is( luckily he's my friend in his not going to charge me regular mechanic rate but I do have to wait for him to have free time) he did tell me worst case scenario it's going to cost me $900 for parts and friendly discounted labor rate if his first idea to fix it fails

Well, I guess one problem at the time and before long you'll have it all sorted out. Good luck.

Should you be putting a 275 on a 8 inch wheel ?

I believe a 9" wheel is what you want to use a 275 on.
