If you don't know already, you will need a sway bar relocation bracket for any wheel smaller than 17" for your 2012... Also curious to why your looking at 8" wide rears, your going to want 10" wide wheels... Especially on the smaller 15" diameter wheel.

I would run 17x10 wheels with 275/40/r17 I think... Or taller if it would fit

Thanks for the response. They would be dedicated drag wheels. I'm aware I would need the sway bar relocation. Why a 10" instead of the 8"? I thought a smaller wheel and more sidewall was better to take the shock at launch?
