    suspension

    f.bodybeast. Mini- tubbed with coil overs. Once you cut the frame rails. Tire size is no problem.

    me.. very nice tire.. I wish they had more sizes between 12" and 15" sidewall widths. I would like to see a 28X13-15. I have the 28X12-15's now... so I am going to a 325/50-15 drag radial because I have some room left in the wheel well.

    Nice riding and looking tire.

    Looks good. Do you have some pics of the suspension, maybe with a tire off? I'm looking to do the same with my car. What rear did you go with?

    psca has a class called street challenge and they run a mandated 245/60-15 M/T SR street radial tire and so far this season this class of cars have been 9.3x's / 150mph

    Okay, just changed the script. Put M/T 28X12 SR radials on the rear with 10 inch 4.5 back space. Worked perfect. Stock suspension.

    Any pics?.. 5" BS would have worked best, but as long as your car isnt lowered and the fender lip is rolled, they shouldn't hit on big bumps. They are a terrific tire, and wonder why more people dont run them. the 28X12 is a nice wide tire that fits the 2nd gen camaro nicely. Another 1/2" wider would be perfect for me though.

    I am also in NJ.. Bergen county.

    yeah i agree with Tokyo..they are a nice tire and heard they hook pretty good for a street radial too..i have 5.25" BS with fender rolled and seatbelt hump beat in and they don't rub on anything. Probably could have gone with 5.5" BS since i have more space on the inside but they look great! :) and I also would like at least another 1/2" because they either have tires that are too thin or too wide none in the 12.5" section width.

    Mini Tub

    Did you get your mini tub as a kit or did you fab it? 4-link or ladder bar?

    A little of topic I've been looking at the MT S/R radials 26x10 15' but I was also ooking at the et street radials Do these requires tubes or can you run without them? Also is 26x10 15 a 245\60 series. I've been using that rim calculator and am about crazy. Any feedback? I like the Mickey s/r though.
