Default Bigger Tire Size Options???

I just got my 04 SLE last Saturday with the stock 235/55/17 tire size on it.

I think the car would look much better with some bigger rubber on it, while still staying with a 17" rim.

The best I could come up with was a 255/50/17 to keep the stock diameter, I was looking for a something a little wider especially for the back.
(Yes I know it'* a front wheel drive car)

Figures I have some 275/40/17'* laying around that went on my mustangs, but their almost 2 inches to short and leaves a serious 4x4 look.

Any suggestions???

The 255 might rub, depends on the offset of the wheels. Anything wider will rub.
