'69 wheel sizing help needed

Guys, going w/the suggestions to run 275/50-15 ET radials. I've got 275/60-15 BFG T/A on there now, and the wheel has a 4.5 BS. There is no way a bigger tire will clear the out wheel well/quarter panel - it just about fits as it. I may be able to go a touch more to the inside - not much though. I'm about an 1" from hitting the 3" tail pipe.

What do to? 5" backspace maybe? I dont want to spend alot of $$ on wheels - these will be just a dedicated set of drag wheels.

I bought the vintique rally wheels for my slicks and found out they are heavier than same sized GM rallys. I can't use stock GM rallys because of back space. Thought I'd mention the weight in case it's an issue for you.

I also looked into the circle wheels and probably would go that way if doing it again.
