Well, after quite a bit of digging and research the wife and I have decided on MB Old School wheels in gunmetal with a polished lip, and Nitto NT555 G2 tires. The fronts will be 17x8 with zero offset (4.5 inch backspacing) with 245/45zr17 tires. The rears will be 17x9.5 +6mm offset (5.49 inch backspacing) with 275/40zr17 tires. If my measurements are correct, the rears should take up pretty much all of the available space width wise when using stock suspension. I was having trouble with the backspacing options available on the 17x9 or 17x9.5 wheels in most brands. The MB Old Schools were the only ones that we could find that we liked in the under $200.00 each price range that didn't have 6 inches + of backspacing. The tires are identical in diameter, but the combination allowed me to go quite a bit wider on the rear. I'll post photos once they arrive for additional reference.
Thanks to everyone that has previously posted. The information helped me quite a bit!
