Tires and wheels

I was wondering what the largest size wheel you could fit in the rear of the fox is. I was wondering if a 10inch wide wheel would fit without any problems. If there are problems, how do i make em fit?

Thanks, I forgot to include that tidbit.
A good set of aftermarket lower control arms like the UMI Lift Bars and the quad shocks are no longer needed anyways.
