Have you thought of 235/45/17? That would give you a 1" reduction in overall tire height.
Also what's the back spacing on your rims? It should be around 4"- 4 1/2". If you have less than that, it moves the wheel towards the fender.

It could be your backspacing.

So your rims have zero backspacing? That's why your tires are hitting the lip.

They might have been talking about offset and not backspacing. Which totally different.

No problem. It's the distance from the back of the rim to the bolt holes. 60's mustangs should be around 4 to 4 1/2 inches depending on wheel diameter. There are a few charts on the Internet for each model and wheel size. If you gave an 8" rim and 0 offset then you're good.
