Slick Tire Size

Need to know what size slick I can get under my car? I currently have a 275x60x15 drag radial with an 8" wheel under it. Dont remember the back space but fits well and looks good. I need to know what size slick would be equivilant to this? I know its 28" tall and roughly 11.5 wide. I would like to run a 10" rim maybe down the road and need to know the backspacing too...Thanks. My car has no quad shocks.

You probably have a 4.5" backspace. I run both a 28x10.50 ET Drag and a 28x11.50 ET street. They are mounted 15x10 Bogarts with 6.5" backspacing. I am using a stock width fox 8.8 with disc brakes. Only mods to the wheel well are rolling the fender lips and a little love with a hammer where the tire made contact with the inner wheel well.

Yeah I ran 15 by 10 bogarts also with 6.5in bs. The 28-10.5 is equal to a 275 60 drag radial.
