Default ET Drag/ConvoPro Q

How big of a ET Drag will fit on a ConvoPro 15X7.5? Will it stick with my H/C,Yank SS4000 setup? 426RWHP.

Should I hold out and get 10" rims instead?

i am running 26x10.5-15 ET Drags right now, and they work well, only thing I had to do was get the rims screwed, found the tires were spinning, which makes me wonder about all the tires I have run before.

I have used the 28x10x15 ET Drags on 15x7.5 Convo Pros and it worked great. The side wall is pretty tall so you should hook. And you should be able to trap as high as 128+. Depending on what your car traps, you should be going through the traps close to the peak of your power band.

28x9 is a good tire for that rim (26x10 will also work)

26x8.5 fits perfectly. that is what I ran 1.50 on with the six speed
