Default biggest wheel/tire combo

i am sure this is probably been covered on here before, but what is the biggest wheel and tire combination you can put on a 4th Gen Camaro without major body modifications and sticking past the wheel opening? i know 15x10 with a 7.5 bs is the norm with a stock length rear-end, but i am going to be either putting in a Dana 60 or a 12 bolt, so axle length will be changed to accomodate a different offset anyway. will a 15x10 with 5.5 bs fit with 2" narrowed on each side? if so, what tire size fits with that combo? trying to come up with ideas on which way to go with this car since it is currently a roller and this is the 1st direction for rear wheel/tire combos. if nothing with this route works to my satisfaction, then it will be changed to mini-tubbed or go all out and back-half the car and go strictly drag car! any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
