Wink What is the widest wheel i can go ?

Good day guys, hope everyone is well . I am busy with my 67 impala SS restoration and looking for some wide *** wheels in the back , i would like to go as wide as possible without doing any modifications or the wheels sticking out at the side, im going with a 2'' drop so the wheel will be under the arch , thinking of 18'' x 11J if possible 0'off set ? but im not sure if they will fit, can you guys please help me with what you know works or have you heard of that works in the back of a 67 impala ,

Thank you in advance

I have a 67 SS and I had 295/65R15 M/T drag radials ( 11.8" section width, 30.1" diameter) on 9" wide (5" backspace) wheels. Now I have 265/70R15 BF Goodrich ( 10.7" section width, 29.7" diameter) on those same 9" wide wheels. In order to fit those & have some clearance I rolled the wheel well lips & I also cut out the bump out on the spring pockets & replaced them with flat pieces.

I don't think 11" wide wheel will fit. I've had 18x10" and they fit with no issues but little room to spare. Now I'm running 20x9.5 with +1 offset or 5.3" backspacing.
