    Question Anyone Running Weld Pro Stars on 4th Gen F-Body

    I have a 2000 Trans Am, WS6, A4 with 3.73 gears and I just purchased a set of Weld Pro Stars. I bought 15x3.5 for the fronts and 15x10 for the rears. My question is what size MT tires should I run on the fronts and rears. I have been told that MT 26x6.00R15LT Sportsman S/R for the front are a good choice and MT 275/50R15 DR for the rears. I would like the rear fenders to be full without any rubbing when hitting bumps. Any suggestions will be greatful and pics of your setup with tire size will be a plus.

    Anyone running a 28" rear tire? What will be the difference in running a 26" tire or a 28" tire?

    taller tire lowers your gear ratio so a 26" tall tire is stock high so your 3.73s would still be 3.73 if you put a 28" tall tire your 3.73s would be like a 3.42..simplified version

    That was actually up in Dover, Delaware but it wasn't really a "meet". A buddy was killed on his motorcycle and it was more of a "memorial run"...a one time thing.
