275x40x20 tires

hi guys newbie here..

i know most of you guys here recommend 255x45 on 20" rims..however those tires are not available so i ended up getting 275x40. I just want to know from you guys if I made the wrong move and should have waited a couple of days to get the recommended size?

From what I see the ones I have are slightly bigger compared to 255's so I want to know what would be the effect on the car in terms of parts like axle, wheel bearings, etc..

will it shorten the lifespan of the parts? what about my fuel consumption?

Welcome to the city!

I have no recommendation on tires as of yet. Ean (my truck) will be getting new tires in January.
