Question

I bought the 15x8.5 Torq Thrust with 3.75 back space for the rear. I currently run a 255-60-15 BFG T/A and with the 396, cant go anywhere. I used to run corvette rallys and with the 15x8 with 4" back space, had plenty of room for a 275-60-15 BFG T/A. I want a bigger tire but the Torq Thrust is .75" out tward the outer quarter lip. So is anyone runing the same sized Torq Thrust and what size tire fits, I dont think a 275-60-15 will fit, at least on paper.

Bigblock,
With the offset of the 8.5 Torque Thrust D's almost any size tire over 235/60-15's will rub. The only way they won't is to have the wheel well over the tire( jacked up high). I wanted a 15x8.5 D's on the rear of my car but my buddy tried them on one of his 69's once and said they were a no go!! I have 15x7's front and rear. Good Luck.... mx
