Hey guys so I've been thinkin about this lately. With the car minitubbed and the rear narrowed and the right BS on the wheels is there enough clearance to tuck a 29.5 W tire? I was thinking tucking the big tire would look sick ontop of not having to cut up the outside of the wells. What's everyone's opinion on this? Anyone done it yet? Pictures?

I am not sure you can tuck a "W" without going to a ladder bar or 4-link set-up and relocate the shocks...I am pretty sure....29's..yes...W's...no (i don't think so)

You can with a minitub, Brady did it with a 315/60, tucked all the way.

You can tuck it with work. However you may find that it's really tight to the fenders and a stretch may be required. It does require a little extra narrowing to get the job done though. Then space gets to a premimum which will require some offset LCA's and you'll be getting real tight to the shocks.

why would you ever need to run a 29.5W?? there's guys running bottom 7s with a 29.5 non-w but yes you can tuck it with the right rear/bs combo and minitubing.

that's fine, i'm just not a fan of people sticking way more tire than they need under a car, kind of a waste. good luck though. since you are in arlington, i would do what i've told you before, contact wolfe and they can help you set your car up exactly like you want it.

But you definately had to trim the quarter and the bumper correct? I'm tryin to tuck this without having to do that. Like completely in the wheel well

Ok so what I'mlooking to find out is CAN i get AT LEAST a true 10.5 tire completely INSIDE of the wheel wells. Maybe Brady or Outlaw can chime in on this or Madman

you can fit a 10.5 easily, 10.5W requires more work.. Diameter of the tire is very important, a 28x10.5 will fit tons easier than a 29.5x10.5. I had to cut in front of the wheel and trim the bumper cover.. pics again of fitting a 30x12.5 tire: http://teamprickracing.com/95z/bigtires/

Easily done, look at my sig. That's a 29.5 10.5 S tire, a 29.5 W will fit too. You just have to mini tub it if you want it to look like that. My rear is narrowed just a hair more then Wormboy's, 5 1/2" per side, you get that ultimate deep dish look which makes the tire look bigger. His rear we narrowes 5" per side since he is still using stock tubs, but we can't get his car as low as mine.

* Both Rears are for sale, along with wheels, and wheelie bars.

And yes for the 150 millionth time, both cars are stock suspension!

Uh, I don't think so. The fastest ever 1/8th mile pass on 29.5 x 10.5 tires that I'm aware of is a 4.75 or so with a nitrous BBC. That would be close to a 7.3-7.4... not exactly a bottom 7 to me.

The Limited Street record is 4.78 on a 29.5x10.5nonW tire to the best of my knowledge. That would be 7.30's or maybe a high 7.20 if the car ran a good back half.

Our Mustang has run an 4.84 on the 29.5nonW's and went mid 4.90's on the 7.50 runs on the 315 DR tire.

I purchased Roofer Daves old rear (9"). It is shorted 6" each side! I have to go with a 3.5" back spacing, coil over (relocating the springs/shocks) and relocate the lower control arms. I am running 15x10 rim with a 29.5x10.5 W tire. I am going to be using the Wolfe Mini tubs (which I currently have on order)...

Do you plan on keeping the whole tire in the wheel well or do you plan on cutting the quarter and bumper?

The whole tire will be in the wheel well. We want it that way because I want to be able to lower the car in the back... 7 second cars are not supposed to sit high in the back... :)

Ok so no cutting of the quarter and the bumper then right? Sorry if I seem retarded here I'm just trying to make sure on everything. And yes I believe my 8 second car should sit nicely too. Are you going stock suspenion with this? (a torque arm still)

Yes, there is a torque arm but it is custom... It's only about 18" long (it came with the rear). The LCA won't be in the same location, neither will springs/shocks. As for cutting the quarter and bumper, I really won't know until its all done, but I don't think I will need to do that.

You will have to cut the front qaurter and rear bumper. The way our rear fenders are designed, the top of the fender sits out about 4-5" past the bottom of the quarter panel. If you wanted to do zero cutting, the tire would have to be in 6" from the top of the fender. You would have to definetly have a backhalf car, the stock frame rails would be in the way. On my car the rear frame rails are notched a little, the LCA and Springs are in the factory location. If you want it to sit low then there's no other choice. I could relocate my LCA's and Springs but the frame rail you really can't. What would be the point of relocating suspension parts? It wouldn't be Stock suspension, just stock type. Most Organizations state suspension peices must bolt in factory locations.
