According to the March 2000 issue of Car Craft you can use 17x10 wheels with 6 inch backspacing and up to a 315 tire if the aspect ratio is 40 or less. Also requires removal of the rear seat belt retractor & bulge. They also say, "this is a really tight fit, so success will vary car to car".
BTW, for the fronts they say the max is 17 x 9 1/2" wheels with 6 inch backspace (if you are willing to modify lower control arm / steering stops). Tire size of 275 with aspect ratio of 40 or less.
Please let us know how it works out if you try it.
