Ok unfortunatly today my car thought it would be a good idea to spin me into a curb and wooden light pole effectivly slicing an 1.5" chunk from my rim... so what I did was bought tonight 2 17x9 rims to put on the back and to just put the two 17x8's in the front, I want to run 275/40 17 in the back, and a lil bit skinnier in the front... i am not good with tires nor size, so what would the sidewall size be good for? I heard 245/35 17 would fit on the front and the sidewall would be about even. Any suggestions on what size to put my front tires?

245/45/17 would be perfect for the front, its the stock size. They both have a 25.7 inch height so you will be fine.

Another question is.. I have to make a decision... one of these 3 tires... Nitto 555 Extreme performance, BF Goodrich g-Force Sport, or Kumho Supra 712... what do you guys think? I can't decide, haha. All around the same price except the Kumho is around 30 bucks cheaper per tire...

I loved my Kumho's when I had them. Never a problem and for the money, a great performing tire, wet and dry.

yeah I liked my Old nitto's... they were a lil bit more expensive.. I went with the BF Goodrich ones.. I talked to a couple guys around here that drive stangs that love em... and the reviews were the best... I heard the Kumho's start wearin down quick after 5k miles... we'll see..

I had The Bf-Goodrich's on my old Audi TT and they seemed to do pretty good with its handling capabilities. Even in the rain those things were pretty sticky
