rims sizing

I am going to do a 5x4.5 rotor swap on my wifes 95 cougar and I was curious if I could fit 17x9 rims on the front and 17x10 rims on the back also I wanted to know if I was able to do these rims could I fit 300 or 315 tires on the back.

Got the only bird with Lambo Doors in Texas!
Thanks Luke!

no idea on the rear, but 17x9 on the front will work

you'll have to do some extra work to get more than a 255 on the front and a 295 on the rear.

The fronts are going to be hanging WAY out...I would have to suggest a 17X8 front wheel with that same spec and you will be fine. Otherwise its going to look totally WRONG.
