Default 15x10 drag wheels without grinding?

Are there any 15" rims that will fit my fourth gen without grinding caliper.
Even minimal grinding is fine. Or what 16" rims would anyone recommend? I have 15x3.5 prostar weld's for the front. So anything that will look similar.
I would do the 16's because I already have 16" slicks. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

I'm not totally against grinding. Im just wondering if there were 15" Wheels I don't have to grind. Do you not have to grind the racestars? What backspacing? Thanks for the replies..

This is what I was getting at, if it isn't narrowed then you'll need 7.5" of backspacing on a 15x10 for a stock length rearend

Other than making a 5.5 bs work..
