Ok I know this has been discussed I just couldnt find it. So putting a 325 MT ET drag radial on a 15 by 10 wheel with 7.5 backspacing and stock length rearend? does it fit? is it gonna need pounding? cutting? welding? any help and pictures would be great

I just installed mine last night. I have beat the inner fenderwells in pretty good and cut out the spring pockets...the caliper will have to be ground for the wheels to fit. I had 28x12.5 ET streets on mine and had to do a little more beating to get he 325's to fit. They fit now but under hard acceleration the quarters will rub the tops of the tires so I still need to roll the inner fenderwells.

I used a 6.5 BS with mine. As for rolling the inner fenders, I don't have any rubbing with my setup. I have a right rear airbag in so maybe that's what's keeping it from rubbing.

ok, well w/ what i've read and taking what you guys are saying into consideration i have a few questions to go along w/ WHTLT1's. in your opinion is it worth the effort to get the 325's to fit, i am torn between tire choices, i will drive the car on the street dont really care about the authorities much.. is there any problems thus far w/ them on the street, i'm looking into either 325/50/15 mt radials or 28/11.5/15' et streets. i have prostars out back, 15x10 w/ 7.5 back spacing. so far my car is untouched in the rear (no grinding calipers or any clearancing yet). Also i do not have adj lca's but i dont think that'll be a prob it looks as if they'll clear front and back right now fairly evenly. I'm more concerned w/ rubbing the lip, and also the bump stop removal etc.. any help is greatly appreciated.

I have them and it isn't too bad to get them to fit. I actually plasma cut most of the inner fenderwell out (the lips that most people just bang out of the way) and a few other places, but it can be done just fine with a BFH.
I like the look, but I wish they could come in another inch but that would require having the axles shortened and all that fun stuff.
