Default What size rear tire are you running?

Simple question kids.

Elaborate if you like. Post pics if you will. We all want to see and know what you run.

When the car is raised up and the axle is hanging low, the tires almost touch the frame, like within 1/8th inch of the frame. But when its lowered down onto the ground, theres alot of clearance mabe 1.5 inch
