This maybe a silly question but would it ok if I got away with only deep dish aka 17x10.5 rims on the rear and the stock rims on the front ? That would mean a stock 245 on the front and at the largest 315 on the rear. Would that cause any complications and if so what’s the largest wheel and tire setup I could run without changing the fronts.

As long as they were matching styles of wheels you’ll be fine with stock 245’s up front. Make sure you get sticky quality tires.

Don’t get oversized tires on stock rims. Looks silly and you may go out of manufacturer spec (safety and performance losses). If you want bigger tires on the front, save up and get rims wider than 8”. As an example - See the tech specs links for the sizes you are considering in the chart near the bottom of the nitto 555 G2 page (the next size up - a 255 tire is not recommended by the manufacturer for an 8” rim, it recommends a minimum 8.5” rim, preferably a 9” rim): https://m.nittotire.com/passenger-tires/nt555-g2-ultra-high-performance-tire/

Ok thanks so much this clears it up. I was just planning on getting the same anthracite grey rims but just the deep dish version.
