There you go! You can now move forward with your project.

Buy the way I would sell you these wheels (15"-10",5.5" BS, 4.75 bolt pattern) I've posted for $200.0 + shipping if you want them. They're used and have tire screw hole in them. No center caps, not needed to show axles. These wheels sell for about $220.00 each.

I run 28 X 10.5 on a 10" rim. I've also ran the same tire size on a 12" rim no problems with a minitub. I used to run a 29 X 12 on a 12" rim, that worked as well...but it was really tight between the frame and tire and tire to fender lip.

Almost always for these types are cars we're talking about 15" diameter rims.

Here are two pairs of M/T drag radials from Summit.

Both are 275's.

Just something to think about.

I used to run the older MT drag radials (275's), loved them. They had great traction and rode nice. They did not however last long on the street so i have since moved to ET streets (non-radials). They last much longer but do not ride as nice as the radials.
