That'll fit, That's what my 10-spokes have on them. I think 315's are usually the widest i've heard people going

275/40/17 is stock size for an SS/WS6 on a 17x9 rim. so yes, they will easily fit.

I've seen 325's before but that takes some "massaging" , 275's will fit easily as long as you have the right wheel. Here's some good info:

315R/275F on a 4th gen SS/T/A.

Best looking ass ever. Even the ZL1 needs to go wider if it wants to match..

Oh yeah, I went there.

And I said SS because holy dovetail 4th gen spoiler that actually looks right batman!

I've seen it done, but it's not safe. And looks kinda dumb.
