I'd want to run 275/40-17 NT01's on the 17x10.5's.

If you are willing to heavily roll the rear fenders and don't mind some slight tire rubbing even after the fender roll and negative camber in the rear, it can be done. With the 275/35/18 Michelin PSS on the 10.5" width wheel, it is slightly stretched so that it may get away without any rubbing with the negative camber in the rear, but if you have a full car or under full compression, theres a chance of rubbing.

As for the NT01s in 275/40/17, those run very wide and will most definitely cause rubbing onto your fenders even with the heavy roll. The 265/40/17 would be the better fit on your car for the R-compound, and even then that's pushing it after the fender roll.
