Wheel and tire clearance issues?
1987 Ford Ranger 2wd. Lowered and seriously stiffened. Want to put the biggest 17x8 wheels and tires on that I can. What sizes will fit best without rubbing? I have an idea that a 17x8 or 8.5 with a 255/45/17 would fit, but I don't want to start ordering stuff without the brain trust here giving me some words of wisdom. Thinking about those 1993 Mustang Cobra Turbine wheels in a 5 on 4.5. Like the retro look. Not a big chrome guy. Want to fit massive brakes later so I need the 17's for clearance. Subtle...very subtle.
