Re: drag radial ?
MT DR 325/50 x 15(11" tread width x 26.1" dia) is recomended to be on a 9-12" rim. A tire that big on a small 8" rim will be sucked in too much and the full width of the tread will not contact the ground. You would be better off using a 275/50 x 15(10" tread width x 26.1" dia) on the 8" rim IMO, still a lot of tire. Not sure if the 325 mounted on a 10" rim will fit in the stock 1st gen wheel well, seems like it would be too much to me. I tried to run a 275/60 x 15 on a 7" rim(recomended 7.5-9.5) and I can clearly see where the tire was making contact with the ground and about 3/4" on each edge was not. I am switching to 8.5" rims right now which should work much better. Narrowing the rear end and custom wheel offsets will certainly get the look you want but at a greater cost.
