Default I screwed up! Help!

.. Okay it's not that bad but I really need some advice.

I put some wheels I had kicking around on my 7th gen accord coupe, they fit, but not really.

I'm hoping some of you could take a look and see if I should try to make this work, or if I should just scrap this idea and get some proper fitting wheels (realistically I'd probably just go back to stock and scrap the idea of modifying the car)

tires on front at 225/45/17
tires on rear are 275/45/17

everything else on the car is 100% stock

here is an imgur gallery of what it looks like as of an hour ago when I put the wheels on, try not to laugh too hard please

So I just did an AWESOME job making my car look horrible!

I'm hoping you all can give some advice.

Before you ask, I had these wheels kicking around so I decided to try to make them work - I realize the offsets and tire sizes are not ideal

Below is an imgur album to show what the current fitment looks like. Tires are 225/45/17 front and 275/45/17 rear. wheels are 8" in front and 9" in rear. i dont recall exact offsets right now but i dont think its too relevant anymore now that they're on the car and look stupid

The car is 100% stock other than the wheels. If this is going to work I'm going to need some camber in the rear (maybe a bit in front too?) and I'll need to lower the car a bit (I don't want to lower it too much, just enough that it doesnt look stupid).

Any advice is greatly appreciated. I get wholesale on eibach so I'd like to run either sportline or prokit depending on the amount of lowering needed, if possible.

Hoping someone can recommend what I do as far as camber goes, what do people generally use? I'm not famliar with this chassis - can i get away with eccentric bushings? who sells them?

Please advise and don't laugh too hard

PS - You can see that in its current state it is rubbing a bit on the rear fenders.

I think that with some camber and lowering, it could work. My questions I guess are; What is a reliable common method of getting some good camber in the rear of these cars? I'd prefer something simple like eccentric bushings.

Also I'm not too interested in going crazy with the suspension so I'd prefer to just go eiback sportline or eiback prokit depending on how low I should go.
