These are 11.5



These are 10.5


Not a very good comparison, but FWIW, the 11.5's are actually 1.3" wider on the tread. I'll never attempt to run 10.5's again.

Yup, I'd think somewhere between a 5.5"-6" BS would be ideal. I now have Draglites and my rear 9' with 5.5" BS fits about as well as the Centerlines ever did although slightly inward would be ideal.

I guess what I was was wondering is how close the 11.5s come to rubbing the fender. My car sits pretty low. I also have the 15x9 draglites.

TC89LX,

What size rim and backspacing do you have on those rims. I bought a set of them last summer used and they stuck out past the fender well in the rear too far for me. I know they only have a few sizes for 8.5" rims. I believe the backspacing I need is a 5". The disc part of the rim is more flush to the outer lip than the ones you have, which are more recessed.

My Warriors were 8.5" wide with the standard 5" BS.

I think on a lowered car lip rolling would almost be a must unless the suspension was very stiff back there.
