    The rears are 15x10 with 7.5" backspacing and no I didn't roll the fender lip. Haven't had to yet. The fronts are 15x3.5 with 1.75" backspacing. I had to remove the bumpstops and clearance the calipers a little. The rear tires are 27 x 11.5 Hoosier QTP's.

    How does it hook??
    Reason being it seems the 10" rears seem to be much more expensive. Is that extra inch worth it??

    I am finally looking to toss a 12 bolt under mine, and I would like to have a set of drag only wheels/tires.
    Not looking to set records, just to get her out of the hole.

    Thanks!

    Ordering my rear end soon, and would like to have some idea of what light wheels to toss on with the drag set-up.
    I think I like those.

    Pretty much what I was thinking.

    I don't need to hook up a ton of power, but I want to make sure I get wide wheels. And there seems to be a pretty big difference in price from 9" to 10" wide wheels.

    9" enough??

    Those don't look bad either.

    Currently looking for just the rears. Actually think I have them picked out. ProStar 15 x 10 x 7.5.
    Trying to find some used as I have time before I could run them anyways.

    How much grinding is required on the rear calipers?? What did you use to grind?

    It depends on if you want to use a spacer or not. If you use a 5/16 spacer the grinding is minimal, 3/16 spacer you have to grind more, and if you use no spacer then the grinding is pretty heavey and you have to be sure you do not grind into the brake fluid passages which would ruin your caliper. Iused an angle grinder. It worked great took me about a half an hour per caliper!

    No spacer on the rear used here. Took at least an hour per caliper. I use 5/16 spacer on the fronts.
