Re: ride quality
Can you come up with a part number for the Koni shocks? I bet they are adjustable and are set to the firmest setting. I have Koni Classic shocks and run them on the lightest setting in the rear because the firmest was way to stiff for street use.
Now as for wheel and tire fitment if you decide to change what you have you'll need to start with what you have and convert the backspacing to offset assuming everything fits properly. Once you have the offset then you just pick a wheel with the same offset in the size of choice. An 11" wheel with 5.25" bs has an offset of -19 (stock you would want about a +6 to center the wheel between inner and outer fenders). If you went down to a 9.5" wide wheel you would want a 4.5" backspacing in order to maintain the same center line as your existing wheels. Unfortunately the tire would probably look lost in the wheel well if you made that change.
I would work on shock adjustment and proper fit first, then if your rear springs are using solid bushings I would replace those with urethane and them possibly look into a tire with a bit more sidewall if they are available and not too tall overall!
