Late to the conversation, but if u want a flat face rpf1 you have to get a 9" wide wheel. Just an FYI.

Yes it will work fine. That's what I have and a lot of autocrossers also use that. But if you can get a 17x9 you might as well.

I don't know why that's funny, but yes...

On stock struts "and everything." Lots of room.

Do not stagger tire sizes under any circumstances. Do so, then prepare for imminent failure of your center diff. The tires you choose must all be the same size mounted to the same sized wheel.

They also have to have the same sidewall height. 255/40/17 all around will do you fine.
