I would go with a cheaper 315 like sumitomo. A 275 stretched over a 10.5 rim looks terrible and isn't recommended.

yeah I have seen some people do the 275 and it would just share me hitting a bump down the road... I have 315's Sumi. and have for over a yr now and they hold up pretty good.

You could fit anything from 295 to 335. I'd look for used tires. The toyo R888 is (or used to be) easy to find in 335 as it is a spec race tire for some series for vipers.

You should be able to get a good year or more out of the sumitomos unless you are burning rubber all the time. $200 or so for both once a year isn't all that bad. My BFG sports in the front which are 255s cost more than the 315s, so you wouldn't really be saving any money.
