With 17" rims the tire sizes are restricted. 315/35-17 is most popular on 11" wheels.

"Need" depends on a lot of things. Just the looks alone are need enough! Smokin' the 315s in 2nd gear just puts icing on it.

My preference is 9 & 11.5 x18 with either 315/30 or 335/30 on the rear. Max out that space! Up until the tires became NLA I was running 345/35-15s and 12x15s on the rear. Required fender rolling and such but worked just fine on the street and track. You can get a lot of tire in there.
