One clearance issue to note, my exhaust pipes rubbed the rear tires & had to be modified, if you've got custom bent exhaust make sure there's clearance before sticking a 275 under there.

American Racing, forgot what model though.
Front: 17x8 4.75 backspacing, 245, 45 tires.
Back: 17x9 5.5 backspacing, 275, 40s.

I've had clearance problems all around.

My front was several inches lower and rubbed like hell, if I hit dips it got pretty scary when they hit the wells. Changed the springs and it feels so much better now, looked way better before, several inches lower, but at least I don't have to worry about that now.

The backs rub on the inside, the rearend seemed to be offset so I put a 1/4" spacer and studs on the passenger side and it helped but when I turn up driveways and get it crossed up they rub pretty bad. Sometimes it almost locks up and I believe i've bent my driver side rim when I turned up a driveway to fast, thought it was the axle but when I was polishing my rim I noticed a weird wave on part of the dish.
