BigBody, Sweet looking paint scheme. It looks sharp.

How big of 15s and tires can be stuffed on the rear of a 95 wagon without cutting?

The widest you could fit is a 285/40/17 on 17x9. You might be able to fit a 295 series tire out back, but I'm not sure if they make these for the 17's.

Thumbs up hope these help a little.

15x8's (4"bs) w/235 60's and 15x14's in the rear (7"bs, 1/2" frame notch) w/ 295 50's also 2 pics w/ 15x10's in the rear (6"bs) w/ same 295's. P.S. the 6" bs is perfect w/ the 10" rims but NOT with the 295's! No spacer, the tire hit the frame and w/ 1/4" spacer, the tire hit the skirt even with the lip rolled. Hence the flares 275 60's would probably be o.k. though.

I still have the 2 15x10's if you are looking for some (I wouldn't want to go that "narrow" again) Depending where you are though, shipping would be pricey!
