If you're talking about the Mickey Thompson ET Street Drag Radial, 275/40R17, according to their specifications these tires are designed to fit on a 9" wide wheel. With a tread width of 10.2" and a section width of 11" I'm not sure how they would fit the stock wheel. The stock tire section with is about 9.5". I have a brand new set of ET drag radials (same size) mounted on a set of 1993 Corvette wheels (blade-type, 17" X 9.5" with a 56mm offset) and they fit snugly on my Goat. There's only about a 1/4" clearance between the tire and the inner wheel well. And the tight fit is due to the wide section width. And they would definitely rub the fender lip under hard acceleration. Hopefully you can use some of this info during your search for the right setup.

They fit on the stock wheel. You'll have to roll the lip so they don't contact the body.

I'm running 275 Nitto DR's and they fit fine. No rolling necessary because they run a little narrower than other 275 tires.
