Who's running a 28x10 slick on a 15x9 wheel?

I need some sidewall to sidewall (overall width) measurements for a M/T 28x10.5 ET Drag or a Goodyear 28x10 slick on a 15x9 rim.

Thanks John. You're the only guy on here that I know is running them.
I'm trying to see if I can fit that tire/rim combo under my Futura without narrowing the housing.

That turns out to be a dang tough measurement to make but it's around 12 3/8" across the buldge (+/- 1/8").

I came up with the same measurement pretty much as John with that tire on my 10" Weld. 12 3/8"-12 7/16"

John91Coupe, is that a 5.5 backspacing?

Just wanted to say I have the same setup as John, and it works great.

I also run the 15x9 with 28x10.5 but on a 6" BS wheel. The fit is great with only minor BFH clearance on the inner wheel well.

Goin for broke Oh wait a sec I'm already there! For sale low mileage brunette, doesn't cook or clean. Take over payments!

Thanks everybody,
I wasn't able to get to the computer over the weekend. Thanks for the measurements. Glad to see it's close even on the 10"wheel too. Hopefully I can fit an off the shelf rim under there and not have to narrow the housing.
