With the clutch kit you should have no problem turning the 26" tires.

As long as you can stay with a 8" wide tire on the front you should be good to go. However, aftermarket tires are hard to come by with a 8" width. And anything over 8" will require either spacers or aftermarket wheels.

The offset wheels you're talking about will give you a wider stance thus more lateral stability.
