Wheels for a 65 TBird

Its me again and already guys, I'm not sure if this question should go here in suspension or Exterior so forgive me if i'm in the wrong place.

My question is what would be the widest wheel and tire that I could fit under the tail of my Thunderbird without have any issues ( shirts off by the way )

My off question is if I choose to go with like a 10" wheel, how would I get those to fit?

I very seriously doubt that a 10 inch would fit. There were no 10 inch street tires when you car was designed.

One of my fellow moderators ( who is a pretty smart guy ) came up with a tool to help determine the widest tire/rim combination that will fit under the vehicle.

Powerrodsmike is the fellow who designed and made the tool.
You could easily duplicate the idea and the tool.
