    Looking at getting my drag radials. What is the widest tire I can fit under the 07 Mustang GT? Stock ride height, not lowered. Thanks, appreciate some input

    Not sure what the exact largest is, but I run 275s without any issues at all. I've had 275/50/15 Mickey Thompsons, 275/40/17 Hoosiers, and 275/50/17 Falkens on the car without any clearance issues.

    I'm currently running 295-55-15 M/T's on the back of my 05 they fit but close, I have them 15x10's with 7-1/2 offset.

    The tire depends on the wheel. What size wheels are you using 15x?, 17x?, 18x?

    Removed the OEM frame rail bump stop and made up a plate to relocate the bump stop on the axle housing to under the frame rail.
