I was hoping to run 275/50/15's but from your experience it sounds like that will hit. I wanted to have some serious meat, but I can simply use a set of slicks at track...
Glad to have read you post probably saved me some real grief. The slicks I have are I think 8" wide and 26" tall so I think they will fit with no problems.
