Default 27 inch tall slicks fit?

i got a pair of 27 inch tall slicks from a buddy

my car is lowered 1.25" in the rear

i put them on my buddies 89 and i know that year dosnt have the extended fender flares and they just barely fit. hes still on stock springs.

im wondering if use these will they rub bad? they were hitting his quad shocks everynow and then but like i said.. hes on stock suspension and im not.

i run a 27.5" (rated at 28") MT et street on my daily driver. they rub on hard bumps but i didnt roll the fender very much. just beat it with a hammer some. if i go back and clean it up i know they wont rub at all.

first they are about worthless on your setup, why because you really don't push the horsepower to be effective, also you have stock spline axles...get a pair of drag radials so you won't bog the engine... flipping the quads will gain you some room

your the dumass here asking the questions that 16 year olds know....your too stupid to know to even flip the quad shock to gain room.....I have been drag racing for almost 30 years and have built over 95-100 cars over that time .I do know what I'm talking about dip$hit! you may have a whopping 275 hp at best. even at a childish rpm leave at 2500 the engine will bog... making this worst dip$hit is you lower the rearend which makes it hard to plant....to get back to your coloring books
