    M/t 295/45r17 & elevens

    O.K., So I've been doing some hunting around for photos and opinions the last few nights on M/T 295/45R17 drag radials mounted on 11" wheels (Torque Thrusts II's) and have noticed some guys saying that particular size seems better suited to a 9" wheel, and that when mounted on an 11", the side wall doesn't look quite right, as the physical width of the wheel is quite a bit wider than the tires natural distance from bead to bead. I personally liked the idea of filling the wheel well with a bit more tire, and thought this would be a great set up with 11" TT II's in back and 9.5's & 275/40's TT II's in front. Have any of you done this, and if so can you show me how it looks? Also, at an advertised 27.2" diameter - a 1.5" difference over stock, is it true I will have ABS issues with this size?

    PM member Mr. Luos as I believe he had the setup you described. I don't think he ran DRs though.

    I have the same rims with the same size. I'm running 315/40/17 et's on the back and 275/45/17 on the front works perfect and looks awesome.
