no wheels yet until get a idea of rear tires for the rear. i figure a 15x10 wheel should be ok. just wonder if a 28" tall and 10" width slick or radial would fit. presently has a 275x40x17 in the rear. it's about 10.5 width but it isn't very tall. the heighth is what i'm worried about.

a 15x10 with 6.5 back spacing fits perfect. the 295/50-15 drag radial is a good fit. and if you want a true slick, the 12.50-26 e.t.street is about the same size.

a 6.5 backspacing is a lot. sure you didn't mean 4.5?

Also that size tire will affect your gearing.

i would only run a 26 inch tall tire, that on a 15 inch wheel will work fine and the gearing will be close to wat it is with stock rims and tires

The biggest tires I've seen on an SN95 that wasn't tubbed are 29x10.5 slicks or 325/50-15 drag radials.

28x10.5s + UPR Pro Series suspension = wheelies, all day long!
