Looking at buying tires soon

I I'm looking at buying new tires for my car soon here in the next month, I have a couple questions though. What's the widest tire you can run on a 17X8 rim? Also, does anybody have experience with BFG KDW2s or Toyota Proxe R1Rs?

for 17x8 you can run a 255/45/17 (for 94-04 Mustangs), should give you a bit more lip protection from curb rash, I would not go any wider. If you have an 05+ what ever size they recommend for a 255mm wide tire.
