M/T 275 Pro Radial, Fit?

I have a car that is setup to Roll Race at air strip events.


And really want to put a 15" beadlocked Weld wheel and a 275 pro on it this season. I had a stock fd wheel with a 255 DR and traction was not the greatest. We plan to make another 150whp ( made 760 last setup) for so this season and will need all the help i can get. I know i will need to grind/roll etc. Just looking for someone who has fit a 28" tire on the back.

Thanks, Jared

You need to check the rules you'll be competing under. DR aren't allowed for many of high speed events like the Texas Mile.

28" can fit

However, it's got to be proper,
Properly (flush rolled) fenders
Right rims
Right ride height
Only have experience with mt drag but they "grow" like crazy, thought I was good on all above accounts, halfway into the first dyno pull the tire grew enough to catch mudflap bolt, by by mudflap bolt, then the edge of the mudflap got to meet the tire, cut a slit to the chords b4 I saw the smoke of heard the screams

Samrico ran a 28" (the red Fd that did wheelies) and roan (speednyc) runs a 27"
The 27 nice compromise from "just fits" 28 to "I wish they were bigger" 26

Thanks for the Info. I want to keep it a Radial bc I street race this car alog, and do roll events. Does anyone know what backspacing etc.. I will need for my wheels. Want to order them soon, I have HKS Drag Suspension so I know I can adjust it out.

THanks.
