How much will a M/T 10.5x28 ET Drag grow at 140mph?

Using a 10" rim and wondering if I'm going to have to cut the front/rear lips of the rear wheel opening for a 140 mph Fox.The tires are centered in the wheelwell,approx. 3/4" clearance front and back.Thanks,Tim

My 28x12.5 M/T ET streets on a 9" wheel did not rub. My 28x10.5 slicks on a 8.5" wheel did. On a 10" wheel I would think you should be fine.

According to their website, the 28x10.5 tire will grow approximately 1.5" at 150 MPH. I hope that helps you. James
