    Currently, I’m running Cragar SS 15x8 on the rear (will edit post later with BS), MT ET Street 255/60/15 with a 10.2” section width and no issues.

    I’m wanting to move towards a more pro touring look but still need the car to hook up, running 17x(9-10”) with the Nitto 275/40/17, section width of 10.91” tire diameter of 25.63”

    I don’t mind rolling the fenders a little but I really don’t want to hack up the car, it’s too nice in my opinion. I would appreciate any thoughts on wheel size, backspacing, if spacers will be needed or any other info.

    Thanks guys!

    Have you checked out Bryant's car that is posted in the Garage section of this site? He is running and racing 17s with your requested tire size. He has posted all the details in the Garage tire and wheel section.

    I’ve browsed through the Garage to no avail, but will check the Garage for Bryant’s car. Thank you.
