OK, here is the real deal. I have a set of Bogart 15 X 3-1/2 on my car. Your going to have to grind down the brakes caliper a little. And your going to need a spacer 3/4 in. The stock control arms make the wheels stick out and look ugly. So go ahead and go to a junk yard and get a set of 89-93 control arms and put them on. You might have to get longer 3" studs from Moroso. If you need part numbers pics and stuff let me know. I think I still have them somewhere.
I'm using Weld Draglites. They have the same hub as the Prostar. I had to grind on the caliper for clearance. It took all of 20 minutes to do. I tried going with the spacer route but it looked to "ghetto" for me. If you do a search you'll find a lot of info on the subject. Mine are 15x3.5".
i run the 3.5" Prostars up front with 165x15" Pepboy specials.
It works, but i would like a tire that doesnt look flat all the time.
For my GT with stock brakes, i had to grind a 1/4 or so from the center of the caliper bar, which was a 1 minute job. Then i run a 7/16ths spacer behind each wheel.. Works out nicely, and the spacing looks righ on. Car handles just like it did with the 17" wheels ( although im not taking any 40-50mph highspeed corners)
