getting a new setup thinking about running a drag radial just wondering what is the largest size you can put on a fox body mustang without tubbing the car

if you have a big f ing hammer you may may be able to fit 325's if you are extremely lucky...the 295's or 315's will not fit without cutting the body front part of the wheel well and the rear part of the wheel well...275-60's generally fit the best though

the rear end is a 9inch, narrowed 1inch on each side 52" backingplate to backing plate and the wheels are 6" bs, but I have a 1/2 in billet spacer on each side to move them out (they were rubbing the frame rails, not the stock tubs. My draglites are 5.5" bs and they fit perfectly. Wilwood drag brakes. With stock width and disc brakes, 6.5 would fit the same.

The record on a 275/60 Drag Radial is held by Chris Groves F2 SBF Mustang at 7.66 and some guys down south have been 1.25 60 footers with the Hoosiers so they do work pretty well, it's all about power management.
