Specifically 15 x 10 6.5 backspace with 28 x 10.5 x 15 ET drags or 28 x 9 x 15 ET drags on a foxbody. Concerned about fitment issues. My car is now slightly lowered. Thanks.

They actually fit little better if the rear is a little lower to keep the bulge of the tire from rubbing the spring perch. Just have to do a little hammer work to the inner fenders. I don't have draglites but you get the idea

Nice pictures guys, thanks! Looking like the way to go. How much air you running in them and are you using tubes?

Looking good

Well, I think I'm going with the 28 x 10.50's. My 15 x 10 6.5 backspace draglites showed up today (thanks 1961galxy). I borrowed a used 28 x 10.50 ET drag from a fellow racer yesterday. Rolled the tire on to the rim this evening and aired it up to 10.5 pounds. Trial fit it, had it off and on several times with several key blows from a BFH to the inner fender. ended up with at least 1/8th inch clearance all the way around without a wheel spacer. Stuck a 5/16th spacer in there and I have good clearance all around. I'm going to pick up some better quality 1/4" spacers and go for it. Here are some pics with the 5/16 spacer in place. Thanks for the pictures guys.



size compared to 27 x 10.50's

15 x 9, 5.5 backspace with 10.5 x 28's. Could not get the 15 x 10 with 6.5 backspace to fit on mine and I BFH'd the hell out of it.

Sounds possible, have a feeling your gonna need more tire as well.

John91coupe, I've always liked your car, one bad a$$ sweet ride. I'm sure it's been an inspiration for many.
