Help! Questions regarding rims/tires

Ok guys so I've got a few questions. I've got a 96 4.6L GT. It has the 17x9 Bullitt style rims by wheel replicas all the way around already on it. And I hated how far under the rear tires were before so I bought 1" spacers to bring them out and from all the negatives I continue hearing about them, I'm looking to purchase some 17x10.5's for the rear and completely do away with the spacers.

Just kind of curious as to what size tire I should get? All sites say 315/35/17 but I wasn't sure if they'd rub anything? I've got 2" steeda sport springs and that's all I was really worried about. I want the perfect stance and I wanna do it right the first time so any feedback is helpful!

They'll fit just fine. You might need to flip your quad shock but I didn't have to

I would remove the quadrashock.....kinda useless to begin with lol and depending on your setup if the bullits are deep dish you'll be fine. If your bullits are like my cobras u will also be fine as well. I have 17x9 front and 17x10.5 rear on 315/35/17s wider looks and performs better.

Yeah they're deep dish. And I'll definitely be going with 315s cause they do look so much better to me
