Wheels: 15 on back, 17 on front

Hiya haulers! Been a LONG time since I posted. I'm ready to buy wheels and am looking for advice and pics.

I want AR23's or from a similar period, like Weld Prostars
(back--15"diameter-10" width)

I would just go w either of these, but the ARs are only available up to 16". The Prostars only up to 15".

I'm not asking about backspace measurements. The truck is lowered and I'll need to get my own measurements. Likely going to be 5 in the back, 4 in the front. And I'm getting Ford 9" brackets welded on the rear housing, so we'll make it fit. TIA
83 GMC 406 th400/3.73 Eaton Truetrac posi, headers, x pipe, & racePros. Tubular control arms, lowering rear springs, caltracs. Still ugly, but getting built right, although slowly

Re: Wheels: 15 on back, 17 on front

I put 15x14s on the rear and 17x8.5 on the front
But since I put dropped spindles and springs on the front I had to use a
5x5 bolt pattern on the front and 5x4.75 on the rear
