I just ordered Foose F104 Legend wheels - 17x8s front and back. I'm looking for suggested tire sizes that will fit without modifications.

I have US Mags Bandit 17 x 8 rims in back with a set of Nitto 275 x50 ZR NT555 G2s. I have new Eaton Stock ride height leaf springs. They fit well, but I did have to roll the rear fender wheel lip in across the top from about 10 to 2 o'clock to eliminate any contact with the tire side wall. I also as a precaution trimmed the outer lip on the rubber axle stop mounting bracket to eliminate any sharp edges from contact the inner side wall of the tire..  I watched over time as the car's ride height and fender clearance settle down from a light weight rolling chassis to a fully load car ready for the road.
