    Hey Jerry. I run BFG street drags on mine. They are 11" of tire and fit fine. Ill let you check them out when we hook up at BK. By the way...are you doing the cam yourself? If you want to I have all the tools and a bay we can use for $5 a day on base. Just let me know. I dont have the know-how on changing it though, but if you do, id like to help so when i change mine i know whats up.

    you would need a 10.5" or 11" wide wheel to run a 315 and, probably need to roll the fenders!
