Ok, took a rear home to see how it fits. (Front suspension is torn apart right now)

The rear wheels are 15x9, with a 5" backspace. These style wheels were somewhat limited in sizes, or I would have gone 10", and slightly more BS. The tires are 295-50-15.

Overall, not too bad, it is a little hard to tell inside the garage and up in the air. It doesn't stick out past the quarter panel. On the backside, I have about 1 3/4" from the sidewall of the tire to the edge of the leafspring. Up higher, about 1 1/4" from tire to the bracket that holds the rubber bump for the axle.  (The angle of the pic makes it look a lot closer)

My only issue now is the gap from the top of the tire to the lip on the quarter. There is about 4 1/2" gap.  I am going for an "Old school" jacked up look, but I hope this isn't too much! (Kinda late now, lol!!) I put new 5 leaf springs on the car cause the old stock 4 leafs looked weak.  The car is on jackstands under the axle housing, so other than the whole car being in the air, I think this gap is about where it will be. I don't have a lot of the parts on the car right now, such as motor/trans, doors, interior, decklid, ect, so hoping that will lower it a little. Plus, the springs are brand new, car hasn't even been on the ground with them, so they should settle some. 

So, overall, I'm a little concerned about appearance with the height/gap, but am good with clearance everywhere. If given a choice, if available, I think a 10" wheel, with a BS around 5 1/2" would be a real nice fit. Hopefully this helps others looking for sizing info.
