i run a 295/50 on a 15'' rim with 6.5 backspacing on a 10'' wide weld, but you will have to beat out 2 little spots bc it will rub ome.

The 28x9 et drag on a 15x8 wheel with 5.5 BS is a GREAT fit. At the ets you are running I feel they are more than adequate. I ran them on my BBF coupe and they showed me very consistent 1.51 60's. The 10.5 does fit but, does require BFH work. A 28x 10.5 on a 9" wheel w 6" BS is a good fit also, minor clearancing required.

Yeah , Id say either run Welds or you can use some 10 hole rims with the 26x8.5 or 9 ET DRAG.. TONS of guys run DRAGS out here on the street and dont get busted , just dont mess around in the rain..

I will second the rain deal! I drove mine ONCE in the rain with slicks. Made it about a 1/4 mile and never even thought of driving in the rain again EVER! I hope some people read this post and take a serious look at the 28x9 et drags. You get a good fit and the tall tire really helps the hook.
