    Default Dragway Rims???

    Hi guys, These are Dragway Deepdish rims.



    I need a bit of help.

    I am looking a buying a set of these for my ute.

    My questions are, what are the biggest wheels I can run.... without them rubbing on the guards.

    I was looking at something like 14x8 (front) and 14x9 or 14x10 (rear)... would I be able to run a 10inch rim on the rear without it sticking out of the guard too much???

    If I am able to run a 9inch or 10inch what backspace would I have to run???

    And last question, What sized tyre would I be able to run with these sized rims????

    Any help would be appreciated...

    I just found them on the dragway website... They are listed as the deepdish...

    I would like them to fit my ute similar to this.



    I have no idea on how to work this out so please help me...

    go 15s i think i remember reading thats what the ute in the pic is, i had similar questions when getting my rims, im getting 15x7s with 3 3/4" backspacing, i would have had 3 3/8 except the rims wernt available, pont69 helped me out, i think "legally" you can only go a 1" wider and higher, its something along those lines, thats why im getting 15x7, later ill go wider, i dont think the rims will be cheap, and ive been told 8" on the front scrub on full lock, cant say personally tho

    all depends on offsets as to what will scrub where, i have a tonner with 15X10 on the back with 5 inch backspace and 15X8 on the front.... the fronts scrub but i have had worse scrubbage on other cars

    Yeah, bigger is better.... I'll have to give them a ring and see what backspacing and sizes they offer...

    Okay, looks like 7" on the front... I'll try 8" or 9" on the rear....
