What wheel and tire size fits an Explorer rearend in a 47-55

I have an Explorer 8.8" rearend for my 51 Chevy pickup. I would prefer to run 17" or 18" wheels. I will run 1" bolt pattern adapters and I'd like to know what wheel width and offset works well. Also what's the largest tire that will fit with adequate clearance.

Thanks!
