275/40-20 on 20" x 10"s

In case anyone is thinking about wagon rear wheel/tire fit:
Withe the rear springs removed, I raised the rear axle until the bump stops touched the frame.
Both rear tires would turn freely without any rubbing.
Wheels are 6mm offset.
There's about 3/8" clearance between sidewall & wheel opening flange, so I recommend hard bushings in upper trailing arms.
Fronts rub on outside edge over dips & inside with steering at lock (with about 1/2" of wheel spacers).
Looks pretty sick, might have to get some really short rear springs

Remember, when not sure what to do, hit the throttle.
It may not end well, but at least it'll end the suspense.
