What size wheels and tires for back on fox

I need to get some back wheels and tires I have a stock wheel well 93 coupe. It has coil overs on back but nothing much done to the well. Ive seen some people running a 15x10 with 6.5 BS. I was planning on getting those. What size slick can I run without rubbing problems? I was thinking 28x10. anybody have any pics of there set up?

I ran 15x8 with 4.5 backspace and 28x10.5 tires. I had to roll the wheelwell lips so they didn't rub.

15X8.5 with 4.5 back space.. 28/ 9 / 15 MT Slicks

Yep the fender lip needs to dissapear..If ya work the inners get a torch and heat it up.. that will make it easy to massage..

Some times it depends if your lowering the car as well.. always watch your driveshaft angle..

PM me for pic's..

Laters!
