I'm running 15×7/4.5 BS with 275/65's. They rub on big hits. Normal driving they only rub with 4 ppl in the car.

275/60/15 on 15x8.5 with only minor rubbin on the outsides, but not on the fender lip, only the inside. Haven't pushed it out yet, but won't be a problem.

what is your backspacing????
According to the American Racing site it is 3.75". We also have another 63 with 15x8 steel wheels with 4.25" back spacing and they don't have the clearance problems on the inside of the fenders.
