Rear tire size question??

Hey All.
The Gremmies gone, but I wanna start a rat rod build. I can either tub it or put more normal tires on the rear.

I was thinkin id like to set the body low and put a set of TALL rear tires on it. Something like a front semi tire. I can maybe have adaptors for a 10 lug semi tire made, but was wondering wats the tallest tire n rim I can use thats a 5 lug pattern like a forf 9 inch rear?

I dont want a 15 inch wide 44 inch mudder, but something thats tall like a 38-44 inch tall tire or a 11R22.5 inch front semi tire thats narrow (8-10 inches wide) and tall.
Any ideas or suggestions? Tnx, HG

Intriguing idea. Here's some info I stumbled across....
http://www.tejascoach.com/tires.html
I can visualize a rear (nice deep dish) painted steel wheel, 10.00/20, with adapters cut from 3/4" aluminum plate or a set of 11.00/22.5's, done same way.
