Tire Size

How much meat can you put comfortably in the rear?

If you're talking a drag wheel and tire setup, a 28X12.5X15 will fit perfectly and you'll still have an inch of clearance between the inside of the tire and bump stop bracket.

Lol it's just the choice of wording... worst (or best) words in this scenario.

Depending on the offset of the rim you can fit up to 325 so I've been told and read about.

My wheel has an offset of +45 and 305s will fit no problem as long as I have relocation brackets which I do.

So if you want 325s I would assume a lower positive offset like +29 would allow 325s to fit.

This also has to do with how low your car is and how tall the tires are.

For street or drag strip? There will probably be different answers for both.

I've scored several stock perfectly good Pirelli's with very little miles on them for cheap on CL, averaged $60/tire. Picking up two more brand new ones this weekend from a guy. You guys keep disliking them, I'll continue to buy them off you cheap as hell and use them to get me to work and around town. Thank you.

That's right. I'm not a hater. All those guys can whine and complain all they want about the Pirellis, I'll gladly continue to take them off their hands for pennies on the dollar. They work perfect for driving around town. I don't count on them at the drag strip, that's what DR's and slicks are for.

Thoughts on whether a 305/35 on a 20 x 11 wheel would rub if the offest is +55? My car has not been lowered. Yet...

Headed out the door now to go pick up those brand new Pirellis. Were on loan to a customer with an SL63 AMG at a Mercedes dealer. Score!
