biggest size tire?

hey guys, i have a 69 cutlass with a 12 bolt chevy right now, and its about time i get a new set of wheels and tires. whats the biggest size tire I can go with? I've heard 275/60/15 and 275/50/15 from a few people..but is there anyway i would be able to fit a 295/65/15 or a 325/50/15 with the right backspacing?

That depends on the offset of the rims you are using. Pick the size tire you want, then look for a wheel that will makeit fit under the fenders. If there are no wheels available, then either flare the fender or shorten the axle.
