I have 17x8 up front and 17x9 rears on my car right now. Theres enough room back there to run at least 9.5 inch wide rims. Maybe even 10 with mnor fender mods.
I'm running 235/40's(little small for 9" rim-but its not too bad) all around without any rubbing or fender rolling. You could easily run 245's in the rear, but i wouldnt go much bigger than 235/40 up front.
I would look for 8" wide rims all around and run 235/40 all around, unless you are making some serious power. I have new pilot Mxx3's on my car(basically stock 2.3L) and its almost impossible to break loose now. Drifting the car through turns is quite difficult now. Well not difficult, but more illegal.
email if you want more info or pics. There's a link to some pics in my post below.
