if the ford 9'" rearend you are using is stock width for a g-body then you will need 15 x 10 wheels with 5.5" back spacing if you want to "tuck in" a big tire. I'm using a MT ET Drag 29.5 x 10.5 with that wheel combo. It also requires a full frame notch.

You could use a shorter tire that will hang out in the wind on those rims you have. I think they will still be really close to the frame on the inside without a frame notch.
