Wheels and tire fit for Auto-x

So it's too late to change because I already purchased, but can I anticipate any issues on my 88 with 255/40/17 tires on 17x9 wheels all around? Sounds like quad shocks and fender rolling should do it, so suggestions on an easy way to fender roll that doesn't involve a fender roller? Big hammer and some wood to soften the blow? Thanks.

Even on an 88. I think I am most concerned about the quad shocks with the backspacing. Or is that only really when it's above 9"? Most people it seems only go with 8" in the front, as well, but I wanted a square set up to be able to rotate for more even wear.

The quad shocks rub in the back, for future reference if anyone reads this later. Haven't articulated the suspension in the front with them on yet.

Front suspension rubs a little on the plastic body moldings. Might only be a GT thing? I'm going to try to "roll" them by heating them with a heat gun. If that doesn't work, I'll just the part of it off.
