I have 15x8.5 with 3.75 BS would have to check with a 295/50/15. everything just clears on the inside, the tire sticks out about an inch.

I'll add to the archive.

18x10 with 275/40s all the way around. .25" or so between tire and frame rail. Tires/wheels are right at the fender edge on the rears. I had c5z 18x10.5 rims with 285/40 tire out back previously and the stuck out just a bit and would still barely rub the frame rail on hard turns.
