Would This 15×8 work with a 275 tire?

Aldo

  • A 275 would indeed fit on a 15x8. Just make sure that side wall is between 50-60 and you'll be good to go.

Will this wheel with a 225/60R15 tire fit my 2001 Mustang GT. convertible, front and back?

tiger

  • The Race Star Drag Wheel - Direct Drill - 15x8 is only designed for the rear of the vehicle. This is because the offset and backspacing of this wheel will not be able to clear the brakes. Though, a 15x8 wheel will work fine with a 225/60-15 tire on the rear.

Why can't this 8in rim fit the front when bullitt 8.5's will?

Matt

  • It is not the width of the Race Star Drag Wheel that prevents it from the fitting the front. It is the offset and backspacing which is designed for optimal performance and fitment in the rear of the car.

Fitment Will these fit a 2013 gt with the track pack brembo breaks?

MikeAndrews

  • Yes, they will fit. Per the same Q A on the black 15x10 Race Star Drag Wheels, the Brembo Brake package only gives you Brembo calipers for the front and the rears remain the same as a stock GT.

  • To fit a 15x10 ull need sway bar relocation brackets. With 15x8 u will not and 15x8 u can fit a 275 but that as wide as you should go. I have a 2011 gt and run a15x8 with a 275 and it hooks hard!

    Great bang for the buck

    The 15x8 Racestars are a great option for the weekend racer that does not wish to cut off parts to fit the 15x10 option. The racestar lug nuts leave quite a bit to be desired as they will not hold their finish if you use them in the weather but that is a relatively cheap and easy fix. You can fit most popular tire sizes on the 15x8 wheel without issue and the weight loss benefit alone is great compared to factory setups. The price for these wheels are very hard to beat.

    Excellent Wheels!

    I wanted a wheel that I could use on more than one of my mustangs, so I chose the 15 x 8. Works on my 2005GT, 2014GT and my sons 2004 Mach 1. Great for track days, fit and finish is excellent needed hardly weight to balance them. Very happy with my purchase.

    Good wheel

    I bought these wheels for some weekend drag racing. The wheels look great and I paired them with 275 Mickey Thompsons. On a stock GT they grip hard. My car is low, really low with Sportline Eibach springs. The 275 tires rub a little when going over a big bump. I still have the stock springs so going to an adjustable Koni spring will likely help the situation or else different springs to bring the back up about an inch.

    Nice wheels so far. We'll see how they are on the track this weekend with some NT555R's on them.

    Clean wheel. Classic look. Good finish. Tires went on easy and balanced easy too. Will drive them on the highway tomorrow and really give them a test.

    After lots of research...

    I always do lots of research before I buy. I want the best stuff. I don't want to be disappointed. And I don't want to pay too much. So, this purchase took me some time. I couldn't be happier. The wheels look and function great and now I've got more rubber on the road. You won't be disappointed.

    awesome for the price

    Quality is good for the price. Fitment is great. Depending on tire size they could rub the inner quarter panel on hard launches. Clear brakes which is hard to find for a 2011 even with the stock gt brakes. A must have for a drag set! And DOT approved!.
