I got 295/50/15's on the back of my stang with no modifications. The only problem is that yes the fenders rub and eat up the tire so I need to get them rolled. Anyone know about how much that costs?
its free if you have a baseball bat and some masking tape

so adder.. how tall of a tire in Inches can I run.. Also how wide in Inches of tire can I run on the stock wheel? If I need to lightly massage the fender that wouldn't bother me too bad. I know I'll have to remove the quad shock correct?

unless you are going to do the calculations to correct your speedo, you should just stick to a 26" tire

and you can run a 10.5" wide tire with minimal modifications

oh my bad, meant to ask. On Jegs lookin at some of the tires, for the width, it tells you section width. So running a 10.5" wide tire, would that be 10.5" section width?
