wider rear rims ??

I've tried searching but I cant seem to find any info on wider rear rims for use at the track. All I've got is a set of stock Taurus 15" steel rims that I used at the track with 235/60/15 drag radials but I would really like to find a wider 15" rim so I can go with a wider drag radial as well. I think the rims I'm using are either 6 or 6.5" wide but I would really like something at least 7.5 to 8".

If anyone knows who makes them in the stock 5 x 4.25 bolt pattern please let me know and post a link if you've got one.

Thanks,
Jon

1996 T-bird, 4.6 with ported PI heads and VT stage 2 cams, JBA shorty headers, 3000 stall converter, 3.73 gears and just about every bolt on available.
Dyno tune results: 275.9rwhp and 301.4 torque.
Best 1/4 mile time: 13.65 at 99.52 mph.
Now I need more gear, more stall and some drag radials !!

While wider wheels would be ideal, you can run a relatively decent sized tire on the 16x7" SC or XR7 wheels. I run a pair of 28x11.50-16's on XR7 7 spokes, which works very well.
