Hey guys, I just got some weld 15x10 prostars and need to know if they will fit. I am quite sure they will but what size rubber can you put on them? The car has no exhaust and i'm going to take off the quad shocks because I have Lakewood traction bars and Maximum motorsport lower control arms and FRPP uppers. I cant test the rim because we've pulled the whole rearend out to change to 35 splines and a spool. What rubber should i get? Gonna be a pretty much full racecar with little street duty, even without the exhaust.

A pony wheel has more back spacing than that! It will be a full 2" outside the wheel well. On a 10" wheel I would run a 315 drag radial.

I'm pretty sure my 96 has a 4.5 backspacing and I run 315's on 10.5" rims and they don't stick out. What are most guys running that do 5 lug swaps? Don't you guys get just 5 bolt rims that fit the new style stangs? They don't stick out at all do they?
