how about this combo?...
I have a disc brake conv kit for fronts in my garage with disc spindles, so fronts could be...
FRONTS- 17x7 4.5''bs 235/45/17
REARS- 17x8 5.5''bs 255/45/17
i tired to search but i am unsure of rear bs due to my wider rear end by an inch so 1/2'' on each side of more BS? thanks!

That looks like that would work.

It looks like you need to get a good 18 - 24 inch straight edge and a good hard ruler (no tape measure) and check the clearance inside the wheelhouse. Hub surface to inner lip of the quarter panel and hub surface to the closest object inboard. Then once you have your measurements, you can determine which wheels will fit by total wheelhouse space (maximum width) and the offset required to keep from rubbing the suspension or inner wheelhouse. Good Luck
