    do you mean big as in wide or big as in tall.

    you do not want a tall tire unless you have a lot of gear

    I ran the "old school look" i think you are talking about.

    My times in signature are with a nitto 555R
    275/50-15 on an 8 inch rim.

    My friend had the taller 275/60-15 which is around a 27.1 inch tire or so. You will want at least 4.10s with this tire if not 4.30s. They will hook at 15-20 psi

    My fronts I ran 3.5s with a 165mm superbeetle tire. The above mentioned friend ran 5 inch fronts with a 185.

    In order to get a bigger tire in there, you are really going to need a 6.5" backspacing.

    You should be able to, but every car is a little different. You will probably have to roll the inner fender, and remove the quad shocks. I do know that everyone with the biggest tires is running a 6.5" backspacing. There are definitely Mustangs out there with a 305/50R-15, without any tubbing. My drag rims are 15" x 10" with a 6.5" backspacing. Unfortunately, that's not too helpful to you, because I only have a 10" tire on them.
