1937 Chevrolet p/u lowering questions

Hi everyone I have a few questions about my truck. It's a 37 Chevrolet pu with a mustang II in the front already lowered 2" and a nova rear end nothing done to that. I have 14" rims in the front and 15" in the rear. 225/70 tires in the rear. Ok so hears the questions.
1. I want to put new wheels and tires on. The bigger the better. So what size can I get I have 2"'wider fenders in the rear.
2. How wide of rims can i go without rubbing.
3. Would I have to shorten the rear end to make em fit?
Thanks for the help!

How much room do you have between the frame and the inside lip of the fender, how much room do you have between the face of the hub and the outside lip of the fender, then you have to know how much back spacing you can have, will you be able to get the tire between the end of the axle and the fender. go to any wheel site and they should have a picture of what you need to do, and how to figure it out. don't forget you have to leave enough room for up and down movement of the tire too the fender.
