17x10.5 wheel fitment question

315/35-17 tires on 17x10.5 wheels
what will the fitment issues be with this tire wheel set up on a 87 lx?
I have a fender roller so that's not an issue. is there any clearance issues with the inner fender or tail pipes that will need to be addressed

You'll probably have tail pipe issues. I have problems with mine moving over time and rubbing my 275s on 9" wheels.

its all about offset/backspacing but you have to remember you only have so much room before the tire stick out from under the fender... and a mustang is not a camaro so please dont do that.

I woudl stick with a 275 on a 9 wide with a 6.11~ back spacing
