Default Mounted my 15" Prostars

What a PITA this was. Shave, put rim on check clearance, shave check and repeat on and on. The I had to trim off the wheel studs to be even with the spacer. These pics are with the 1" spacer on. I'm going to take the spacers off and see how they work. I haven't taken them out on the road yet due to weather.


What PSI should I run these at?

well i just test em out on the street. The drivers just touches a hair when I did a launch from 3500. Running them at 18-19 psi. I don't think I'll drive these to much more on the street.

I might slap them on tomrrow when I take off the spacer. I'm debating weather or not I want to change out the rear spings from the H&R race to stock.

Those look really nice ! If you do any drag racing on the street I would run them at 11 psi. That should work good. Then at the track just start high and lower them if you keep spinning. The more psi you can run the better the car will feel up top.

If your set up is working i'd stick with it. If I would have known about the wheels you have I would never have bought these.

When I am ready I will go to another combo, but for now, I'm happy

I dont know if I'm the only one........but yeah the wheel themselves look nice, but I think you are going to have a major problem with rubbing when you launch at the track. The IRS squats alot, and it looks like there is a fair amount of tire outside the wheel well. If it rubbed on the street, its gonna rub a lot worse when you launch hard.

If you insist on running a 15" on the IRS, I'd rather keep grinding and run a smaller or no spacer at all to get that tire inside the wheel well, because it aint gonna be pretty if the fender digs into those nice new tires.

What is the backspace and width on those wheels? I'm guessing 4.5" BS and 8" wide? If so that aint enough backspace IMHO......

Sorry to be the one to say this, I just would want you to have a tire failure at the track, because it wouldnt be good

I don't plan on running the tires with the spacer. It looks too much like a lobo. I have no idea what the bs is.

Lay the wheel face down, put a straight edge on the rim lip, then take a ruler from where the hub mounts to the stratight edge and their is your backspace.
