Re: Wheel and tire size
Here are the generally accepted correct backspacings for a first gen regardless of diameter. You missed it by a half inch.
17x7 = 4.25"bs
17x8 = 4.75"bs
17x8.5 = 5" bs
17x9 = 5.25"bs
17x9.5 = 5.5" bs
What are your front end alignment specs? You could try to add some negative camber to pull in the top of the tire, roughly -.5 degrees.
