That size will definitely not fit the front of your car, and almost certainly not fit the rear of your car. At least not without wheel flares

This is why you are finding no pictures of that tire size. 17x8 fit front and rear however, and many have run that size rim.

What tire? 275/40-17?

To run something like that you're looking at flares, or narrowing the springs and running bigger wheel tubs.
You can run that tire on an 8 inch rim and make it work. Honestly though you will have the same contact patch as a 255 40 17 on the same 8 inch rim so you don't gain anything unless you are running the 275 as a specialty tire (like I do with my 275 40 17 drag radials).
