Default Tire Clearence Question w/Van Steel 2" Offsets

I ordered a set of Van Steel 2" Off Sets from Eck. for my 76 and had a tire clearance question fo those of you running 18". I will be going 18" x 8 front and 18" x 10 w/5.5 backspacing on the rear. What tire size are yall running in the rear on your 10's? Want to get the most meat I can tucked under the back.

I installed them in a day, no issues with fitting them into the car, no dinging needed for clearance, took a little work from both the top and the bottom, so if you have access to a lift, all the easier.

I run 275/40R18 on an 18x9.5" wheel and don't have any issues with rubbing or interference.
I know that I've seen a couple cars with 285, but I think they may have been a shorter profile 285/35R18.
