Is there a common tire/slick to mount on 15x10 rim?

I am planning to buy a set of Greg Weld 15x10 rims for my 83. Is there a "most common" slick or drag radial size to mount to this size rim?

I am undecided on either drag radial or full on slick. It will be a strip rim and tire combo. I have nitto 555s for the street. But it would be nice to be street legal too.

Anyways, what is a common tire size to fit on my fox body?

Stock length axles...

The most commom tire for a 15x10 rim is a 325/50/15 28" tall tire or the 315/60/15 30" tall drag radial .

I was just answering the question . In my opinion not really ( and a 275 should not be put on a 10" rim but an 8" rim ) as you would still need to put a 7/16 spacer on to move the wheel out from the inner wheel tub and use a really BFH and then the tire sticks out even more not my style I mini tubbed my car and tucked the wheels under the 1/4 panel and was able to lower the rear .

IMO, 10.5x28 and 10x26 are the most common slicks and then MT 275/60 for DR's..
