Post Big ***** meats on the back of a GTO

`65 GTO, does anyone know what the absolute biggest tire\rim combination I can get under there without tubing it out??
I have 5.81 gears so the taller the better.
I need to know the offset and size rim I should have and the size tire that will fit under there as well.
I`m now using steel wheels with Baby Moons and realy like that look, so we can use GM wheels as long as a hub cap and trim ring can go on.

i have 17x8's all around on my 66 tempest. i have 245's and am just inside the outer wheel well. it's as close as you can get w/o rubbing. however, i have at least an inch to inch and a half on the other side of the tire, so i could stick a bigger tire in there if i would have gotten more offset. it's been a while and i have forgotten what their std offset is. American Racing Wheels.
