    wheels and tires

    I have a 1998 Pontiac Transam. I would like to put 315-37-17 drag radials on it. What is the widest wheel and Tire package that will fit? How wide of wheel, what back space?

    I believe that an 11" wide rim with a 50mm offset is what you want to run. You will most likely need the BFH mod in the wheel well and to shave the bump stops.

    do you mean to grind the bump stops off or how much do i take off the bump stops? I put 315x17 tires on 11 inch wide wheels with 8inch backspace when i jack the car up about 1/2 inch of the bump stop is hitting inside the wheel

    The metal tabs on the mounting pad extend past the bump stops. Easily removed with a die grinder.

    Hmm, in terms of tire and wheel recommendations, I can only point you towards 4WheelOnline. They have a huge set of tire and rim packages (coming in different sizes) for different types of vehicles. Feel free to check them out, who knows, you might just find what you're looking for.
