Pics of Weld Wheels! Lets see em'

I need to get an idea of what will fit under the car. If you ahve pix, that would help out immensely!! I'm thinking 15x10 or 15x8 in the rear, i would like to fit a 28x11.5.. Anybody have pix, Waht backspacing do you run, what fits best/looks best? So far in my search i've read that 5.5"bs is the best but i do not have any pix to verify this.. All the fast mustang guyz around her are running 28x12.5 in the rear! I need to size em' up boyz so help me out..

Mike

thanks for teh reply,
now how would a 11.5 wide look on that, would it stick out alot or would it look good.. i dont want no barnyard lookin' iroc Yours looks good though

iv'e searched the entire site, i'm reading alot of different opinions and i'm not getting anywheres on this, some say 28x11.5 will fit, 28x12.5 will fit, others say nothing bigger than a 28x10 will fit.. so i can't come to a conclusion on this.. so far this is what i've been told will fit.. (biggest size)

MT ET streets:
28x11.5 with a 5.5 bs
28x12.5 with a 5.5 bs
28x12.5 with a 5.75 bs

Any help here?? Theres alot of badazz mustangs in the area all runnin 28x12.5's and it looks completely awesome, how big can i go!!

isn't a 28x12.50 ET street the same as a 28x10.50 ET drag in size if that's what you mean by the mustang guys running them. and you should be able to hook up on a 28x10 ET drag unless you're doing something really wrong. Although I think i have the inch clearance all around, if not i'd just use the big hammer to make some room.

That i do not no, is it the same size? I'm gonna have to look into it and try to find out, thats a good question, if its true that would definately answer alot of my questions and confusions. I havn't been looking at the drag tires, i've only been looking at the ET streets and quick time pros
