Can anyone tell me if the width of the diff/track between wheels on an XY sedan varys between the stock 6cyl diff and the standard V8 diff or factory 9"?

Reason I ask is I'm concerned that if I measure up for fat wheels and tyres and measure to take up the maximum clearance, that I may have problems with clearances and rubbing when I eventually swap in a V8 diff.

I had a set of old race wheels 15 x 12 I think they were with some worn out slicks and put them under the back of the XY with 6cyl B/W diff and they fitted OK, just. Looked mega tuff! Swapped over to 9" and it was slightly wider. Hard to say by how much, maybe 15 or 20mm. I bought the 9" second hand so maybe it wasn't an XY one, but definitely wasn't XA-B-C one.
