Question 1996 GT Rim info

Apologies if I am posting in the wrong forum - the wheel section seemed more appropriate for selling/buying.

Can someone please give me the following rim specifications for a '96 GT. From searching the forums I have the PCD as 5 X 114.3 mm but I am unsure of the offset and backspace. I want to run 245/45 - 17 in front and 275/40 - 17 in the rear. So near as I can figure that's a 17X9 front and 17X9.5 rear? Will I have any issues with these sizes; rubbing at full lock etc. ?



PS. I haven't actually bought the GT yet, just looking at my options.

those wheels are 17x8 and are 5x4.5 and i think back spacing is 5.95(someone correct me if i'm wrong). most guys will tell you that the widest you should go is 255, but a 275 tires will fit on there. it will buldge and probably will not wear evenly, but thats up to you to decide. how about 255/40 up front and 255/45 in the rear?
