I am going to need to do something about traction when I get my 393 in this week. My firs step is wider tires in the back. I am going with 225/55/16, but I don't know what backspace to get. I know alot of guys have 64-66 stangs, what do you run?

Can you get slicks for 16 inch rims? I guess if not I could get a cheap pair of 15s for racing. Also, how much traction do you need to pull the front end? Is it possible with a leaf suspension?

Pull the front wheels? Yep, you'll need good traction. 16" drag radials are available, not sure about the slicks. Make sure you have a good set of traction bars and a set of front drag shocks would help, too.
