Running different width rims in front and rear

I'm eyeballing some wheels. Enkei Racing series 17x8, with an offset of 48mm. With a 245/40-17 would i rub like crazy up in front?

Or a 235/45-17?

What would be a good way to accurately or semi accurately tell how much wider of a tire i could fit on my car? Does dropping the car slightly affect lateral clearance with the suspension? If the rear end of my car has less clearance, would I be fine with thinner tires?

Would it be horrible to run 2 wider rims/wheels in front with the stock rims and tires in back until i could afford all 4? LOL, ricer style.
