max tire size for a 9 inch wide wheel ??

im getting ready to order wheels as soon as the weather brakes and i found a nice set of staggered foose wheels 17x8 and 17x9 i know most people are running a 17x9.5 but i've found it hard to find wheels i like in that size i'm wondering if i can fit a 275/40/17 on a 9 inch wheel

The Tire Rack site (and probably others) give best and acceptable rim sizes for all the tires they carry.

I run a 275/40/18 Nitto 555 on an 18x9 Foose Legend. No issues. Check with the tire mfg and see what they recommend for wheel width.
