    I had a 335 r17 sumisucko that was good until I got into a sharp turn. Well good as far as they didn't rub but there wasn't anything to do for them to help traction. They sucked...

    325/50/15 can be done, but its completely unnecessary. You'll never need that much tire.

    Not sure, and I dont really care. 325/50/15 is way too much tire for our cars. If you cant get down the track with a 26x10.5x15... you need to re-think your build.

    bullet 10.5's that I think came from American muscle. I bought them from a guy that didn't realize how much work would be needed on his fox to install them in the back so I got them with tires that still had the nubs on them for only 600.

    But as adder said unless your running some major power the 315s will fit and not rub and look good. I am probably going to do a fender flare on my back to see if I can squeeze another 1/2 inch but just for looks and the challenge of it for the most part.
