Nice paint job

No your right you said its not safe but as I've said they are perfectly fine for dd, I dd these tires for 2 years almost no isses, but since you know all about tires why don't you yell me what all the ratings are for tires, and be truthful cause ill bet your tires are unsafe for some type of weather condition.
Yes, my tires would be unsafe on ice along with any other Mustang on any other tire. My tires are safe in every other condition, rain, snow, hot, cold, drag racing, auto-x, road racing, and up to 168mph. You just need to shut up, the more you say the dumber you sound.
If you were so smart mr. master mechanic, you would know that when you put a 275 on a 17x8, the bulge doesn't allow the entire tread width to contact the ground, therefore you are not able to utilize the entire tire, which means there really isn't that much of a gain in traction.
Get on the phone and start calling tire stores, ask them their opinion. Most of them will say the same thing. I know some stores will not even mount a tire on the incorrect wheel based on manufacturer specs, or if they do, they won't warrantee anything on the tire. Call any tire company and they will tell you a 275/40-17 should be mounted on at least a 9" wheel.
