10" wheel will fit... but I've only seen low profile tires on them.

Re: wheel ?

Back spacing is the key to a good fit!...you might be better off with a 9.5".

What size wheel are you looking at (diameter)?

I was just wanting to put a 15x10 with a 275-60-15 mickey drag radial on it to lay the foot print out alittle more than the 8' wheel does but if the 10 wont fit I may just stick with the 8" unless I put a higher priced wheel like bogart or something to get a 9" or so on it.

Re: wheel ?

I think you could have a problem with the 275/60. That would be a pretty tall sidewall and depending on your ride height you could have a problem.

I just ordered a new set of wheels and got 15x10's for the rear. Got a 295/50/15 MickeyThompson S/T set for the rear, but my car is mini-tubbed, so it's not a good comparison for you.

I won't have the wheels for a few weeks, but PM me in a while to see how they fit.

I plan on running the caltrac setup with 1" drop built into the springs,I talked to them and they said the 1" drop will work with this size tire but he thought I may run into rubbing issues up inside the rear wheel wells with there 2" drop springs and this size tire but not positive.
