Based on infernosg's post... if I ran shine 30mm fenders all the way around I could use his same sizes and be fine?

17x9 255/40R17 tires

The front will work just fine as long as you have an aftermarket suspension with smaller diameter springs. I have tons of room but I'm also running something like -2.5 degrees of camber. I have no experience with Shine Auto's rear over-fender things. I've looked around online to see how people modified their rear fenders to work with those and it seems like a lot of work. For me it was easier to just bang out the rear fenders about an inch since I was getting bodywork done at the time.

I need to take a more recent, not-blurry picture of my car.

Yeah when you do I'd love to see it. I think with any rear over fender some of the metal will have to be cutout to make it really work in providing the extra clearance.

The 19" wheels actually dont look bad. I still wanna stick with a 17". Unfortunately alot of the wheels i like are 16" or 18". I could probably be ok with a 16" im just not sure....

I had two issues with 16" wheels: tire selection and suspension clearance. The last time I checked there weren't many options for wide 16" wheels. 245/45R16 was being phased out and 225/50R16 was the most common to run on an 8" wide wheel. My issue with the suspension was the inside rim of the wheel wanted to inhabit the same location as the locking collars on the coilover assembly. I had to use those aftermarket camber bolts to rotate the hub away from the suspension and then dialed the camber back with the coilover top hats.
