I can't remember without going thru all 75 pages of this post if I ever posted any or not of my Challenger? I have Weld Magnum 2.0's with 15X12's on the rear with M/T Drag Radials with a mini tub and rear springs relocated with Caltracs & split Mono-leafs.

So on a stock cuda e-body rear end and springs what the max backspacing that can be used without rubbing? 4.5?

On the rear, you can always add a 1/4"- 1/2" spacer to adjust the tire to spring to fender spacing. It depends on the tire side widths.
And math.

Messing around in the shop, I was able to put 315's on the rear and 275's in the front of my challenger!  Looks great to me.  It does have a b-body Dana so there was about an inch more space on each side of the rear.  Fronts fit great.  Don't know the specs on the offset (just had them in my shop), but they are 17" wheels.

Looks awesome!  No tubs in mine...just had to trim the quarter lip.  LOVE 315's   I try to put them on all my muscle cars!!

(Posted elsewhere)
After years of combo's, I finally came up with what I thought was the perfect set-up with BFG's on 15" rallye's.
Car is lowered all the way around with the biggest torsion bars MP had for circle track racing, and hemi leaf springs in the rear - KYB shocks.
Fronts fit fine, I had the rears made to get a 1/4" clearance from the leaf springs and just clearing the fenders after rolling them.   
I would have to dig out my notes for specs - its been about 25 years.
Car handled well and looked perfect!
 
front: P275/50R15 (25.825" dia)
rear: P295/50R15 = (26.61" dia (24.9" OE) x 3.55 = 3.301 effective ratio) 

Now I need new fronts & they are discontinued!
bought off the showroom floor: '70 Cuda convt - 383 bored/ported, Hemi cam, Rhodes, rollers, Mellings,  MSD, 780 Holley, LT dual 3", lowered, snubber, police chuck, discs, springs, sway bars, B&M, posi, shaker, split 15" rallyes w/295's, leather...
