I have a set of 17x9 chrome cobra r's on my car with 255/45/17's currently...wanting to replace the rears and found a nice set of michelins (match my 255/45/17's) that are 285/40/17......from what I am reading they will fit fine with maybe a slight bulge on the 17x9's????

Yeah you should be good. Just slightly bulge on the sides

Not sure on teh offset of those rims but a lil fender rolling never hurt anyon eand may save the tires. Keep that in mind if it looks close]

If that's the size you have on the front if you put those in the rear it will give it the same staggered look I run look at the pics in my garage of the rear tire

I wanted 285's but I came acrossed 2-275/40/17's Goodyear with 95% tread for $100 mounted and balanced, so I put them on today....looks nice!
