The 27x11.5x15 Hoosier slicks fit without any modification on a 15x8 inch drag wheel. The 28x12x15 Mickey Thompson radials required a swaybar relocation kit on 15x10 inch drag wheels. Some people have had to trim the upper bump stop brackets in order to fit the 28x12x15, but mine fit with a few millimeters to spare. I don't have any pics handy with the hoosiers on the car, but I can dig up a thread full of pics of the Mickey Thompsons. Gimme a few minutes...
