    reason why I ask is because I am gettin 255s in the front and I wanted 315s in the back, but some ppl told me you wont be able to spin them too well if you dont got alot of power, some say I wont be able to lower it and who knows what else, so yes I know 315 is a big meaty bad ass tire so I was wondering what you guys think and if 315 isnt a good idea I was wondering if there is anythin between 275 n 315 if not well i guess 275 will be my back choice. one more thing, if you guys got 255,275,315s on ur stang can you post up some pics of them to make my choice easier and to jus check them out ? PLSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS 8)..........I got a 98 GT !

    315s will fit fine on SN95s, some need to reverse there Quadshocks, but that's it. You DO have at least a 10" wheel, right?
    Why do you want to spin the tires? THAT is what makes your car slow. You want the car to hook and go.
    As far as sizes between 275 and 315, there are also 285. 295 and 305 widths also.
    I have 295/35 18s on the back of my car.

    I meant spin as in make them rotate, lol not burn out......... well the wheels I want the front are 9" and the rear are 10.5 " If I am correct. So then I will get 255 up front and I really wanted 315s on back but if its too much trouble I will go with 305s. So what was that thing I would need if I wanted 315s ? how much is it and how does it help ? I wouldnt need that if I went on with 305s would I ? Thanks for your help! :thumb:

    You don't need to BUY anything. Before you install the new wheels/tires you just unbolt the quad shocks(the small shock in the rear suspension) and flip it upside down. Simply put, unbolt it and install the bottom of the shock at the top mounting spot, and vice versa.

    As far as 255s on a 9" wheel, I would go with a 265 or 275. 265 is pretty much the perfect size for a 9" wheel.

    I had decided 275 up front at first but one guy told me 275 up front stuck out too much on ourstyle so that 255 would be good. But if you say 265 or 275 up front on 9 " wheel is good then cool, but what would u recommend, 265 or 275 ?

    Either 265 or 275, their isn't that much of a difference. Only 10mm. But 255 is TOO small for a 9" wheel. Besides, the guy that told you the 265/275 would stick out too much doesn't have a clue what he is talking about. The wheel's backspacing depicts how far the wheel will stick out, not the tires
