Does anyone know roughly what a 28x11.5 tire is in street tire form? (ex 255/50/15)

Mike, any problems with running that tire? What rims/mods are you using. Thanks.

Well.... I did have to take a saws-all to the rear wheelwells.


After that, a 3/16" metal rod was welded between the inner and outer quarter panels. It was then smoothed over and hit with a little paint.

It's not even noticable, unless you look really hard.

But, without cutting it out, the largest 15" tire GUARANTEED to fit is a 235/60/15. The front needs cut the most... the top a little, and none at the back.

I have 245/50/15's on my car with 4.25 offset and they are soooooooo close.
I call it a 2 seater... anyone weighing over 100lbs in the backseat and they will rub on a bad bump at speed.
