Ok I wanna get setup with a wheel and tire setup. I want some really WIDE tires in the back like 305+'s.

Firsts off I'll get the front outta the way. I have 3" coils w/ 2" spindles. I dont beleive the coils dropped it a full 3"s my guess is its a 4-4.5" drop in front and 5 in back.

So for the front Torque Thrust 2's 17x8 w/ 235/45/17's
and the chosen tires are (BFGoodrich G-Force T/A KDWS Tires)

Then for the back and I know some tubbing will be required
17x11 w/ 315/35/17's and the chosen tires are (BFGoodrich Comp T/A Drag Radials ) or mabye (285/40ZR17 KDS's how much of a difference is that from the 315's?)

If I can I will run 245/45/17 and 315/35/17 Nitto NT555R Exreme Drag Radials but i dont know if the front tires will run or not. That way I have the same brand tires in the front and back.

Now my question is what back spacing should I get for hte wheels. The back wheels can stick out 1/2" to 1" but I'd like the fronts to be flush. Also just to make sure we have 5x4.75 pattern correct?

fronts 17 x 8 4.5" backspacing with a 245/45/17 should be fine. may rub a little, but not much if at all.
u may want to reconsider rear wheel width though.
a 17 x 10 should be big enough. i have 285/40/18 on 18 x 9's
you will most likely need to do some serious trimming to get a 315's back there. belive u need to trim for 295's
my 285's are real close with 5.25 back spacing.

edit
yes the bolt circle is 5 x 4.75

So If I run the 17x8 w/ 4.5 bs and 235/45/17's in front and 17x10 w/ 5bs and 285/40/17's in back I should be ok?

Nope I'm researching before buying. So for the back get 5.5bs, and everything else is ok?

yep everything else looks good, And you could probably get away with 285s with 5 bs but if you ever wanted to go bigger later on you will need 5.5 bs

Tony your signature is funny, "so for lets say 4500 bucks total you get a streetable 4 door that runs low low 11's on pump gas!", shouldn't the total cost be more like $35,000 ?!?! 11.86 is really impressive for only $2k in mods though, nice work.

335's look insane, can you even spin the tires that much with that much rubber on there?!?! If I ever get another set of street rims I will be going for atleast a 305 rear tire setup, just looks so awesome.
