Largest (fattest) Rim & Tyre size on an XA Coupe

I'm looking to fill out the fat rear end on the coupe and was wondering what specs I should be shopping for.

Ideally I'd like to get away without havind to do any modifications to the guards, but If I need to lip them slightly to fit big rubber under there I will be happy to do so.

I've got an XC 9" Diff, with disc brakes if this makes any difference to what I need?

Also if anyone can give me guidance on Victorian Road Worthy Laws that would be appreciated.

Cheers

Steve

10" seems to be the most popular width for the Coupes. I have 15"x10"s on my XB, with 5" of backspace. It's close; can just get a fingertip between the sidewall and the fender lip (unrolled).

US owner Reed Herman's (former) XB Coupe was fitted with 17"x 11" rears . IIRC, he once posted his biggest worry was the occasional rub on the INSIDE, against the rear leafs.
