Drag Wheel Setup
So, as you can see, I'm new here, I've spent a lot of time over the last few days searching information on drag wheel setups, what fits and whatnot... and it takes forever to find all the info. I'm betting to most of you guys its just given, but for those of us who don't know, I thought it might be helpful to see what does and doesn't work. From what I've gathered I know the following:
04's can clear 15" skinnies
05-06's need to go up to a 17" to clear the brakes
17x4.5 with a 3.5" backspace (stock spare, less backspace will work)
26x4.5x17 tire (185/55/17) (M&H and hoosier are the only makers?)
15" will clear all years
Backspacing needs to be:
7.5" for 10" wheels
6 7/8 for 9" wheels
5.5" for 8" wheels
All these backspaces are minimum, and a little more would be better
Max tires on those respective rear sizes are roughly:
275/50/15 (you can go up to a 60 profile for taller)
Roughly equals out to a 26x11.5x15
Maxing this out will require a fender roll, and suspension stiffening, or dropping down to a 255 (10.5) or so.
Am I on track? And I can't find a recommended front tire size anywhere..
