I've seen on here a lot of guys are running 255/45's in the front with 275/40's on the rear....but the 255's are at least .5" taller than the 275's, so does it look ok, or does it look odd having a taller tire in the front?

I think you want 245 45 20 for the front to match the 275 40 20 rear,,This seems to be the most common set up,,

There are very few here with 255/45 front and 275/40 rear. Most are 245/45 front which is the same diameter as the 275/40. There are some 255/40 fronts which is a 28" diameter tire. I would stick with the 245/45 on the front as it looks great and is recommended by the SRT engineers for the best handling.

Looks odd to me.

I must say running 275/40/20s on the rear and 245/45/20s on front with 9" wheels is working out perfect for me! Looks great and performs very nice. I also use Summer tires in the rear for traction and all seasons up front for positive steering in a variety of conditions.

What tires are you running?

Using the OEM firehawks up front with Firestone wide oval Indy 500s on rear. The Indys are very grippy, quiet and smooth. I'm only using Firestone because they came on the car and my fronts were like new and I got a killer deal on the Indys. Although, they are performing great, I will go with something different when they wear out. Perhaps BF Goodrich Gforce Comp2s?
