You can do +42 if you want, you'll just have 6mm more fender work to do. Camber helps but that requires special parts to get a decent amount.
There are 17x8.5" +48 5x100 choices out there, you just got to dig.
Thanks I'll look for those wheels. google'd up these Rota slipstreams that I didn't see on Wheeldude http://www.racinglab.com/rowhsl1751.html
I've got adjustable lateral links, so I was thinking the camber thing would be ok. I also have rolled and pulled fenders and I'm willing to straight cut them if needed (shouldn't need to based on searching threads)
