Are these specs reliable at all? If so, then the 17x10" et25 would be ~16mm further out than my current wheels, assuming the tires are the same size?

Would a fair test be strapping on some 15mm spacers then and see if it rubs?
Not sure how accurate both of those measurements are, but if it is indeed within 0.01" of each other, you should in theory be able to run the 275/40/17 NT01. If the specs are reliable, that is correct, best way to figure out is to add the 15mm spacer (or even 20mm spacers to test against the 17x10.5" ET27).
