    you know how to check the b.s.? flip rim front down take a straight edge across back side of rim and measure up from back side of rim were it is mounted to axle. were they intersect is the number b.s.

    I didn't think anyone made an 8" rim with 6.5 BS?

    You have a centering issue which is adjusted by the upper controll arms. I faught this once i swtched to teh 10" rim. If you have a factory width fox axle in teh car you should be fine with some beating, once the axle is centered in the car. We have a GT with a 10" rim and 28 10 hoosier slick and t clears afer the hammer time fun. My coupe has 27 X 11.50 QTP tires and i have no issues. is this thing lowered to the weeds? Get some pics up.

    niether did I but I'm wondering if he actually has a 15x10 rim. Something's just not adding up-especially if one side fits better than the other.

    And x2 on centering the rearend in the car.
