You will prob have to flip or remove quadshocks, possibly adjust exhaust and possibly roll the inner fender. Hopefully its just the quadshocks

:sigh: again...

Yes they will fit, i have a 315/35/17 BFG drag radial on mine. I Removed the quad shocks and their brackets, i beat down the parking brake bracket, and did some mild inner fender well beating. WALLA no rubbing.

i dont think i want to go 315's if it takes all that modification, i want the biggest tire that will fit without having to touch a thing? also does anyone have any pictures of a 275 on a 10.5" rim cuz ill prolly run those for a bit till i get the money i want for some bigger meats

wow isnt that pretty skinny for it? IMO Id go 295 minimum if you have that wide of a rim might as well userup.

275 on a 10.5" rim is retarded, it's really not even that safe.

To answer both of you, they were on the car when I bought them. It is a wheels and tire package off ebay I believe. There is nothing unsafe about running that tire size. It IS a tad bit small, but not in the unsafe area.

Ofcourse I would run a bigger tire if I bought them, but I saw no need in replacing the tires right now...Ive been spending my money making sure I can outrun 95% of you guys :santa_tongue: :santa_tongue: :santa_tongue: :santa_afro:

Im going with Truubles draglites anyway. These wheels and tires will be forsale VERY soon.

it wont effect the ride if you have LCA's...without them expect mad wheel hop. I think you will have to do a few other small mods for the 315's...depending on which brand you buy.

well I cant really say forsure, as I have MM LCA's..lol I would think it would still handle fine. However you will get pretty bad wheelhop when launching the car.

from what Ive read anything under a 3xx series tire will fit with no modification....depending on the backspacing of the wheels ofcourse.
