Default Tires

fng, trying to finalize the tire/wheel combo. does anyone know if i can run 275/60 15's up front on a 15x8 wheel with 3.5 bs without any rub? tirerack suggested 235/60 15's but i want the truck to have the same rim/tire all the way around instead of the staggered look which i have on my mustang (makes easier for rotation too) but not only that, i want the 4X4 beefy look without having to lift the body just yet. the front end is in good shape with no sag, just like my 24 yo gf !
