I don't know if you'll see side by side comparisons, considering that different tires run wider or narrower than others, some taller or shorter than others, etc.

^ as far as the ride is it really that much of a diff?.. Why does 245/275 seem too be the more common choice?

Ride quality probably won't be very different. It's just a common size for the wheels that fit the car well. Good overall diameter and everything.

+1

The difference is very small between these sizes if the same brand and model of tire is used.
