Re: Drag radials and backspacing

I don't think that wheel will work, not enough back spacing (or at the very least it would be REALLLLLLLY close), and it would stick out of the wheel well too far and could possibly rub depending on what size tire you wanna run, and it wouldn't be useful for you to go with anything too small. why so wide? there's not way you're making enough power to need those wheels... or are you?

I might be wrong but I think you have to get a sway bar relocation kit in order to use 15s

thats a huge wheel. you will for sure need the sway bar relocation kit. I think you need at least a 7.5" bs with a wheel that big so i dont think theyll work

Haha they didn't. Def need the relocation kit plus the wheel just touches the caliper and even further the rubber is too far out. With the car lowered like it is, the wheel well sits on the rubber.
