I did control arms and tires at the same time, so I'm not sure which helped the most. A 15x10 won't fit without modifying the sway bar bracket (cutting and welding). Are you auto or manual and which gears are they? I know a 275/60-15 28" drag radial will fit a 1" drop, not sure bout 1.5-2" drops. A 275/50-15 26" drag radial should fit since it's 1" smaller than stock. I have a 26" on mine and it fills the wheel well less than the stock tires. At most, I would run a 17x10, but not an 18+. Drop them to about 20psi and try it out.

The springs don't allow good weight transfer, so you'll spin more. Just get a really good drag radial like Micky Thompson, Hoosier, or M&H. I realized lowered isn't ideal, but it looks nicer, it corners great, and I don't race enough to justify riding 4x4 all the time.
"LIKE". I'm not the person that says it can't be done.......I'm the person who make suggestions that would be safe so yes to clear what I was trying to say..........low profile tires and drag racing don't mix.

93' LX hatch, 460 w/150 plate, TH400, 9" w/ 3.60 spool. Best (so far!) of [email protected] 146 mph with 1.40 spinning 60' on steel heads
Been saying single digit coming for 3 years.....guess I finally made it!
