Default Will p235/60s fit the front of my Vette?

Stupid question, but my car has p225/60s on the front now, and I want to go to p235/60s to match the rear.
Can I. If so how wide can I go?

I have 265/50R 15's on the front and I have seen a car with 275/60R 15's
on all four. Dont recommend 275 on front though.

I am running 235/70/15 with no problem what so ever.

I will be switching to 255/60/15's soon.

I am currently running 235/60/15 all the way around. No problem; in fact I am considering 255/60/15 as I need to replace my tires.

I have 255 60 15 BFG, front and rear, on factory rallys. There is some slight rubbing up front but no adverse effect on handeling or tire wear.

You could move the 235's from the rear to the front and go 255 or even 275-60's on the rear. :chevy
