Simple question kids.

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

I have 295 30 20 pilot super sports currently on 20x10.5's

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

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...
