    It's not a straightforward answer to be honest as there are so many variables. In terms of basic fit, no, you don't need to modify anything to fit 17x8's with the 4.75" backspacing. For tires I have 235/45/17 dunlop direzza Z1 tires on all 4 corners. As far as how my car sits, that is because I have 4.5 mid-eye leaf springs, I have front lowering springs, with the shelby drop, and 1/4 coil cut. Very occasionally under the right circumstances, I get some tire rub, but nothing severe that worries my in any way. Everything will come into play, including your alignment. Also note that my front fenders are NOT rolled, but my rear are...they were done by the previous owner 20+ years ago, so I can't really say if it's needed or not to fit the rear tires. If you didn't want your car as low as mine, everything will totally fine.

    Good luck,
    Kevin
