    No they will not fit.. Plus slicks right now for you would be to much. They would tend to make you bog off the line. I say that are you M6 or A4?

    It's an m6. It was just a thought, maybe someone on here already knew if it would work or not but i mean they were just laying around his garage collecting dust Lol.

    I think our stock tire height is around 25.6", so I also went with a 26" drag tire. I think you can go as big as 28" without a real clearance issue, but as pointed out by another member, it would have resulted in a negative impact on the gear ratio advantage I gained with my rear end swap.
