85 C-10 Rear wheel spacing

Hey guys,
I read in one of the posts here you could fit a 13" tire in the all stock rear wells. I'm new here and can't find any details on that. Does anyone have the back space and offset, tire size info on this or can you direct me to the prope rthread.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

tire fitment

Measure from the inner fender lip to the inner wheel well. that's the room you have.You will need at least a half inch of clearance on each side for the sidewalls of the tire.If you are using a 13" wide tire you will need a 12" wide wheel. Some sort of aftermarket wheels will be needed.Good luck

Yeah, I just figured someone has already done the trial and error thing. I didn't want to have to reinvent the wheel. If anyone is running big meats without mods, I was just curious what setup you're using. I plan to mini tub it this summer, but really don't want to have to narrow the rear or move the springs inside the frame rails. All comments welcomed. Thanks guys!
