Wheel size for MII susp clearance

Hey Guys,
I currently have the Mustangs to fear Mii front suspension on my 66 and wilwood brakes. I have a set of 15x7 torque thrusts on the front with 4.25bs and at 75% clocked turn the bottom of the sway bar end link (washer and bolt head) are hitting the inner lip of the wheel. I tried spacing it out a bit but it's just a tad too close still.
I'd like to stick to a 16x8 with a 4.75 bs on front and rear but not sure that the diameter will give me the extra clearance I need for the end link to clear. I figured I'd ask here first to see if anyone may know the answer. I'd like to not go to a 17" but if I have to, I have to.


Current: 1966 Coupe (Coyote Swap 408rwhp)
Previous: 1968 Convertible w/2jz (730rwhp) Sold
