a 30" tire is a little tall for your car. Why so big?

Good luck getting a 30" tire to fit in the wheel well unless you run a very wide rim.

12" rims will not fit in the rear. 10.5 is the biggest I've seen fit and they stuck out an inch from the fender.

Why would you mount a 10.5 inch tire on a 12 inch rim?

If you got the 30" tall tire to fit on your car, you are going to want like 4.30's in the back to offset the gear ratio change and get to a gear that would be desireable with a tire of a regular height.

I just went straight for slicks, but got a 26 x 8. 10 inch wide is too much for the stock wheel and they actually recommended a 5.5" wheel for the 8 " slicks.
