I am looking for a set of drag radials and I found a really good deal on a set of 275/50/15 BFGs. I was wondering if these will (a) fit on a factory 15" wheel, which I am assuming isn't but like 6" wide or so, and (b) will the width clear all suspension and other components in the rear?
I just burnt through a set of BFG Drag Radials on mine really quick. The street will eat them up if you do a few burn outs. That is a really soft tire and the rubber comes off in chunks. I would save them for the track if you get them. I personally won't buy another set. I am thinking of some M/T Street ET and just running them at the track.

275s will fit 15s? I thought the 245s i got barely fit on my 16s. Is there enough clearence in the wheel well for 275s? I think i remember that it was said that 275s wouldnt fit in the front due to clearence issues?
