What is the biggest wheel you can fit under a stock length 8.8 stock. Stock suspension. Stock everything. I am gonna roll the lip or maybe even cut it. I was told 15 by 10 with a 6.5 backspacing, but alumastar only has 15 by 10 with 4.00, 5.00, 6.00, 7.00. would i be better off with a 8, 8.25, 9, 9.25? I want to fit a 28-9 slick and or a 275-60-15 DR.

Friend of mine has a 15 by 10 with 5.50 back spacing and he said that he fits a 28-10 slick with no problems

I agree with the above,but also have wondered if a 15x12 with 7.5"bs would also work.It wouldn't affect where the tire tread is,but would push the sidewalls out a bit.Might be good when using a 10.5w.

15 x10 will work with 6.0 bs 28x9 tire with no problems have exactly that on one car and 15 x10 6.5 bs with 28 10.5 will rub a little you would have to massage inside just a touch if you put 28x9 tire it won't rub with either rim.

I just bought a new 8.8 with c clip elim on it.And for some reason it appears to be about a 1/2 in wider on each end than my stock rear...is that right? Right now I have a 15x8 with 5.5 backspace....I have my fender lips cut right now...think it will fit? Or am I gonna have to get a 6.5 bs?
