'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.

Anybody know of a 10" rear rim w/a 5" bs for cheap?
If you can't get at least a 5.5" backspacing,save your money. 5" will cause you a lot of grief.
