I'm pretty sure you can put some 255/45-17's on the rear as long as the specific tire is rated for the stock rim width.

There is this top secret place called American Muscle that sometimes has a few wheels hidden in back. If you tell them "Big Lou" sent you and slip em a "Mickey" they can probably get you taken care of.

I too wanted to find a 17 inch 10 inch wide chrome buillt rim could not find any so went with 18 inch deep dish on the rear and left the front with 17. Fronts are p235 17 stock with car back are 275/40/18. Few people can tell that there is a difference from front and back maybe cause it's a deep dish but over heigth difference is only 1/4 of a inch. pictures in profile
