what size wheel for 275 tire on fox body

I'm looking to get new wheels for my baby and gonna go with 275s in the rear. i currently have 245/50/r16s in the rear. i need to know what size wheel can fit 275s as I've already ordered the tires which are nitto street drag tires.

nothing has been hammered in or rolled, quad shocks aren't flipped yet and i have tubular rear control arms installed. i read somewhere (forgot where) that with my tubular rear control arms i can fit 275s w/out much modification is that so? either way I'm prepared to go at it but. just need to order my rims tonight so i can get them within next week. thanks !

Dude you are the man! Same rims and color I'm getting. What size spacer will I need. And did you use spacers all around or just in the rear?
