Tire size on 2005 GT?

So after 8 years on the '97 I finally upgraded. I'm looking for some
wider tires to replace the 235s that came on the 17inch wheels. I
asked the dealer guy when he called to check on the car, and after 5
minutes of him telling me the first number is the sidewall height, I
gave up. So does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time!
~Joe

I'm running on 275/40/17s all around. My car tracks the ruts in the
roadways a bit, but for me it's ok, I have very good side grip. No
rubbing on the wheel wells either. Oh my rims are 9" not the stock 8"
