The max wheel size will be either a 7 or 8 inch wheel with either a 4 or 4.5 inch back space. Factory wheels were typically 6 inches.

Now if you want absolutes, invest in an inexpensive Percy WheelRite Wheel and Tire tool from Summit Racing. It will let you measure backspacing, offset, and give you the max tire size you can fit within your wheel wells.
