    What size rim and drag slicks will fit?

    I'm looking into getting setup for a pair of 15x? rim and wanna run MT slicks on the back. I think I wanna run a 295 tire out the back so i'm wondering what size rim that fits on and what backspacing I should have on the rim so that it will fit. I currently have a eibach pro kit on the car so it is lowered about 1.25 and i am running a 315 tire on TTII's with no problem. Any help would be appreciated because i'm alittle unfamiliar with track setups. Thanks.

    Sounds like you're looking for a 15x10" wheel with a 7.5" backspacing

    I'm actually gonna go with a smaller tire and go with a 26x11.5x15. I don't think a tire that tall will fit under my car. Ya no skinnies on the front yet. In due time I guess.

    Ya thats pretty tight in there. I got mine lowered with the eibach pro kit and it looks like in that pic that its a similiar height as mine. Gonna play it safe and see how much taller I can go next time around. Sick setup though for that car.

    I can only think of 1 company that makes wheels to clear the calipers. Most 15's require some caliper grinding. I went with Telstar's they require the most grinding. But they are the best IMO.. Hoosier Drag Slick 26.0'' x 10.0'' - 15'' ...
