I'm looking at Pirelli P-Zero's for all 4 corners. Anyone have issues with 275's up front on the SRT8? I want to be able to rotate the tires and I don't like the 255/45 F1's currently installed. And I drive it pretty hard, as the fronts are almost as badly worn as the rears. Other tire suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.

You're looking at .8" or so. You'll end up with half of that going inward and half towards the fender. Just take your hand / finger and feel if you have more than that around the upper control arm (inside of wheel). If you do, you're Kosher. I run a 275 in the front and I'm dropped 1.7" from R/T height (.9" more than your SRT8) and it works with my 9" wheels.

I think you'll be fine. I also think a staggered fitment is nice looking though ;-)

I ran 245/45/20 fronts and 275/40/20 rears With the P-zeros. The front wore very fast on the outermost edge. The tires were great but I only got 12K outta my set. I had the alignment checked and it was good. I was told the P-zeros have a very soft sidewall which doesn't work well with such a heavy car. Not sure if it's true or not.

Stock SRT suspension. Stock ride height.

Well, if it wasn't positive camber then I guess the tires just wear that way or you drive in a circle ;-)

2010 SRT 275/40/20 Nitto 05's on all for corners. This tire is a sticky street tire but harder than a cheater slick. 5-7000 miles is all you are going to get. The fronts clear the steering knuckle by 3/8 ". Never have they rubbed. With only about 3 " of sidewall on this size tire, not much flex available to hit the steering knuckle.
