Question Tire size recommendation?

I have a 99 GC and i just got my 17x9 rims with a +30 offset. below is a pic of how it would sit w/out tires (front & back). Keep in mind, im trying to accommodate my widebody.

Your offset is a full inch off from what it should be. With your wheels being 2 inches wider than stock, you gain another inch on the outside with that.

That will probably rub the fenders, even with widebody kit. The old GCs never had a lot of room for wide tires.
