Tire brands do fluctuate a little by size, but from my experience the widest tire would be 275/40R-17. Anything larger than this will cause abnormal tire wear.

What size tire goes on a 17×9?

But the best sizes for 17×9 are 255/40, 255/45, 265/40, and 275/40. It will depend on the car, the biggest you can run on the front of a fox is really a 255/40. Anything is going to cause some interference issues.
