245/50 in the front and 275/60 in the back. More than that and you'd have to do some modifying.

I thought 255's were as large as you can go in the rear without modifying. 275/SIXTY? would'nt those have very tall sidewalls?
255/45 sounds right to me. But I could be wrong.

tire size

I have 255/60/r15 MT drag lites on the rear with 15x8 5.5 back spacing on rims. I have 205/70/rim on front with 15x7 with 4.75 back spacing. Has a tough stance. The fronts are only 1 inch shorter. This is on a 93 LX so that setup should work well with yours as well!

I am running a 275/45/17 Nitto 555 currently and am looking to run the 555 in a 315 drag radial. Please provide the info if able.
Thanks,
Scott

Woah! Thread revival!

The answer is, 275/60s WILL fit, given the correct offset, if you remove your quad shocks. (which requires quality upper & lower control arms like UPR Products, to eliminate wheel hop)
