    air-shocks, or 9 inch wheels with a 4.5" BS... or road racing wheel well flares..
    or you could mini-tub and narrow the rear..lol:innocent:

    sorry, but you're pretty much hosed for the combo you have.

    I run 275/40/17's on a 9 inch/4.5 BS wheel and it's pretty tight for me too.:cool:
