    I want to go with draglites but I'm not sure how wide to go in the back and with what backspacing. As far as the front I was thinking 4 or 4.5 wide but wasn't sure what backspacing. How wide of a tire could I get back there? I wanted to go with et streets 315/60's. I know there's a chameleon convertible on here that has them on there but I can't find the picture.

    Bikergerm,

    What did you have in mind for a front tire size? I too am unsure what to get for front rim width. I intend to run my Cobra Rs 17-9s for DD, but it would be nice if the Welds could stay on for a few days now and then.

    I didn't think that was an acceptable choice for a daily driver? :dunno:

    It might not be acceptable but I had them on my 70 maverick and I had some 185's on my 89 mustang. I didn't have a problem with either but I was on tirerack.com and they had 165/80's for $29.
