Yes - on my site. Click "garage." Mine are 295/50-15 radial T/As though.

That wheel size and spacing is perfect.

WHAT DID YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET THE FRONT WHEELS TO FIT? DID YOU HAVE TO USE 1/4 INCH SPACERS AND GRIND ON YOUR CALIPER BRACKET? WHAT DID YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET THE BACK TO FIT? ARE THE FRONT WHEELS 15X3.5?

Yes 15x3.5 - no spacers, lots of grinding. Took the bar off the side and some more on the face of the caliper. Do a search on my user name I explained the process a couple times in various forums.

should be fine on the 10" - probably on the 8" as well. They are smaller than my 295/50-15s and they fit. My car is lowerd almost 1.5" inches as wel.

The 3.5s only come in one backspacing. i can't remember what it is (1.75" I think) but it is the only one they make in that bolt pattern.

that was when i was lowered and didn't have to roll the inner fender any. the car is not lowered anymore it is sitting on coilovers in the front and stock springs in the rear. so it's fine., however when it was lowered the outer fender did rub a bit. but like i said now on stock springs it's perfectly fine. the front jsut required a little grinding and a spacer and i was fine. i would definitely reccomend extended studs though if going the spacer route...not fun losin a skinny goin 80 on the freeway...i know
