    Fronts will fit no problem.

    Rears might need a little work. Maybe a little fender lip rolling or BFH.

    Body shop would probably be better.
    You may not have to do anything though...mount them up and see how it goes.

    Im planing on the rear ones being the drag radials and the fronts just regular nittos not drag radials. Is is correct i mean isnt this how it should be? I was just on a site and it said caution its recomended not to use radials with non radials on the same vehicle. I didnt know if they were talking about drag radials or what. But ive always been told by everyone pretty much that i should only have the drag radials in the back and like regular tires or non drag radials up front isnt this correct.

    regular nittos are radial tires... nitto drag radials are also radial tires... where's the problem ?
    both are radial.
    i'd put drag radial in the front as well, or nitto 555rII which is basically the same tire as drag radial with a stiffer sidewall (2 steel belts vs 1)

    Please go more in depth with why you would run a drag radial on the front.

    Some do...some don't.
    I had a little rubbing until I got the LCA's and brackets in.

    well the 555R has a stiff enough sidewall that some people use them to AutoX, because it's a size that is available in 315s... regardless... ppl that use them are happy w/ the results, and it can take a lot of turning load. If you want more ability on the cornering, the 555RII has the exact same design, same compound... but an extra steel sidewall. That tire sticks as much as the 555R, even in the 60' drag, but can take better cornering loads on racing environment... but the 555R also takes them well under racing. The only drawback of the 555RII is the very limited available sizes. 275/40-17 is one of them.
