I had 28" DR's on my old vert for awhile along with a set of 315's for the street. The 315s were R888's which run wide. All you should need to do is the BFH mod and you will be fine. Here's how the drag setup looked.

Big ******* Hammer

As far as tires on stock wheels I am not sure. I know the stock WS6 wheels have 275s on them. I have 2 sets of zr1 wheels (one set new all 17x11, other set used and 17x9 and 17x11 with tires)

Wheel offset and such is usually more important when you have a non-stock width rear end. IIRC in that picture my rear was narrowed 2" per side and the wheels were 15x10 with a 5.5" BS (backspace). With a stock width rear end you would want a 7.5" BS for the same size.
