max. safe width

Hi guys,
I would have posted this in the tyre section, but im building more track than road orientated FD.

Running 17x9 Buddy Club P1's all round to keep the balance correct, i'd like to run 255/40/17 A048R's all round... with the suspension I'm running (Tein RE with 16kg springs) will I be getting trouble with clearance at the front? ...I have the option to drop to 245 at the front... what do you reckon?

Thanks in advance!

For the FD, you should be able to fit 255 all around with the proper offsets.

I am in the process of sticking 275 V700's all around, but that seems to require a coilover setup for the front.
