The rears on the 79 and 88 should be the same. The fronts are the ones that are different. My 79 had a factory spacer up front whereas my 86 turbo does not. IIRC, the tire sizes I used were 235 front and 275 rear.

The rims do look better on Tomy's car, but it may be an illusion as his car is black and we're looking at a different angle. For my 79, I'd guess an additional 15-20mm up front would have made it look much better, but that pushes the wheel out from the hub by almost 2 inches. The rears could have 5-7mm more to push them out towards the fenders.
