17x8 with 35mm offset will stick out a bit in the front.
17x7.7? You mean 17x7.5 right?

Here are some pics of my car when I had 17x8 35mm offset rims with 245/40-17 tires:

You want 38 to 45 mm with an 8-inch rim width. The 35 mm is fine for clearance on the back side but it will stick out slightly.

If you camber in the front they won't stick out at all. Click the link in my sig to see what my 17x8's look like. I run negative 2.3 degrees camber p front.

I'd post pics directly, but I'm on my phone which makes that a pain in the ass.

My setup never rubbed however I was running HotBits coilovers which are considerably stiffer than the stock vr4 suspension. But even driving through the pot hole infested NYC it never rubbed.
At the time I was running about -.5* of camber. I'm sure with -2* or more it would of tucked in nicely just like Turbowop's car.

Some of the pics in my member's ride section are with less camber and dont' tuck completely. I added more camber a few weeks ago.

Here is a better shot of the current front camber:

Mark,

Does running negative 2.3 camber create any uneven tyre wear issues?

Negative camber will not kill the tires quickly if the toe is set to 0.

My tires wear out faster from dry rot than they do from negative camber since I don't put a whole lot of miles on the car. It's due for tire replacement now, and the damn things have tons of tread left. And as iLLeffeKt vr-4 mentioned, as long as the toe is set to zero, it's not a huge issue. Toe in/out is the real tire killer.

Drove with -4* of camber on my gsx for quite a while until I got the adjustable Ingalls arms. The tread was even all the way across. Toe was set at 0.

That's good to know, I think I can get away without flares in that case and just roll the fenders. Thanks.

What size rubber are you running, Paul? Karter has 255's on his car using 17x8.5's and with some suspension work and camber got his to tuck under the fenders.

Mark,

I'm not even running that wide. I'm pretty sure I have 245 on there. The rears tuck nicely but it is the fronts that sit proud. The problem I have right now is that I don't have adjustable strut/camber mounts on there. I have some now and I'll fit them and see if I can get the fronts to tuck as well. I need to check the offset too, I think it might be +38 on these rims.

I have my Tein camber plates maxed out. That gave me a max negative camber of roughly -2 degrees. I used camber bolts on the upper hole of the lower strut mount to gain another -.3 degrees.

You probably don't drive your car enough to know this, Mark, but have you had any problems with the adjustable camber bolts moving on you?

I ran adjustable camber bolts on the gsx and they didn't move. I even autoxed the car and they held up just ine, not to mention hitting countless potholes in nyc.

My camber bolts were moving initially, but I reinstalled them and now it seems to stay put. I must have just not torqued them proper or had the washer lined up wrong Pretty scary the first time it clunked out though

Hoping to not deal with issues on mine, I actually broke out the torque wrench for them.

What's the spec on them? I just hit them with the impact. I just bought a camber gage and with luck I hope to do an alignment this week. Too bad I don't have a level place of my own.

If I recall, the instructions said 55ft/lbs. This is for Ingall's brand camber bolts, others may differ.
