255's will fit fine up front. i have 255's in front and 275's in back, soon to be going to 315's in back. i think 275 is the biggest you can go up front without having any rubbing issues...

i think you can fit a 275 on an 8 inch rim, but i wouldn't go any bigger. they fit 9's great...

i think Cobra rims are 9's. 315's are too big for 9" rims...

275 is the biggest for an 8 inch wheel.
305 is the biggest for a 9 inch wheel.
depending on tire brand, 315 is the biggest for a 10 inch wheel
up to a 325, again depending on tire size on a 10.5 inch wheel

it's not really brand dependent, but how tall the side wall is. A taller side wall will allow you to fit a slightly wider tire on the same size rim.

true, I forgot about that. I was assuming they were all the exact same measurement.

no, you can go 315 out back without rub as long as you're not sittin' on the ground
