What size wheels and waht backspacing. With a 8" wheel with 4.5" of backspacing you can run a 275/60 r15. I have 295/50r15 on some Iroc wheels but the arebowed in and look horible. The only reason I did it was I needed tires and these were used ones I got for free.

275 is about as big as you want to go (with 4.25-4.50 inches of backspace) in the rear, and you still might have problems depending on wheel size and the condition of your suspension.

Lots of good info here
