Wheel and tire choices

Upon my return from deployment, I plan on getting the Steeda Ultra-light silver 18x9.5 and 18x10. I am up in the air about tire choices. I am thinking either Nitto NT555 275/40/18 for the fronts, but the wheels I am stuck between 295/45/18 or 285/40/18 for the rears. I am not worried about my speedodometer being off, I have tuner and my car is not lowered and I don't plan on lowering it. I am leaning towards the 295/45/18 for the rear.

I was thinking about 255 up front, but a steeda rep on another site thought the 275 on the 9.5" rim would be better. Would 255 be wide enough for a 9.5" rim?
I looked on the Nitto site and the 275/45/18 fits a 9.0 to 11.0" rim and the 295/45/18 fits a 9.5 to 11". The 285/40/18 would also fit the 10" rims.
Always check the manufacturers recommended rim size for the tire you are buying. For example, note they offer a couple different 255’s and they have different rim recommendations.
