The biggest I could get on mine is 275x15x60 and have 3/4" on each side with a 4 1/2"x8"x15" rim, thats with no frame or tub mods

I have a '56 210. I just put a kit in it to move the rear springs inboard. The original spring perchs were 4 1/2" from the backing plate and I moved the new perchs in an additional 3 1/2" from the backing plates. After doing the springs you need to move the inside of the wheelwells in to the edge of the frame for clearance.

I am using 245/60X15 on 15X8 stock Corvette aluminum wheels. That gives me 3/4" clearance to fender lip, with rear disc brakes on a stock rear-end.
