I don't want to be "that guy" asking what the largest tire I can fit with a 15" wheel is without knowing any other spec.

But I guess here I am kind of doing that. I have some 15" x 8.5" aluminum wheels with a 3.75" backspace. I want to run the widest tires I can get away with using.

I might prefer all four to be the same size but would definitely consider running two different sized tires .

Well I tried a different set on the back with 245/60R15 tires. Think they'll be fine on the rear. Just don't know about the front with these wheels.

They will be fine on the rear, but seems like a lot of tire on the front. in my opinion...

The first set of rims I bought for my Monte were ARE 15" x 8" with 4" of BS and I ran 245/60 fronts with 275/60 rears, as stated there are a lot of variables when fitting rims even with the same models, ride height and condition of body mounts all come into play.
I do think with your 1/2" wider rim and 1/4" less BS you could have some fitment issues in the front.

I'm not committed to that much tire on the front. I haven't even bought tires. I just picked up these wheels cheap and need them in my life
I like those on a Regal. I haven’t seen them on anything else other than the General.
