Question Need some help with rims and tires.

I really want to buy some ET streets from my truck when I take it to the track. They only make them for a 15 inch rim unless they are like 26 inches tall.

Where can I get a 15 inch rim with an 8 on 170 pattern?

Do ya'll know of any other drag radial tire that is atleast 30 inches tall and would fit on a 16-17 inch rim?

I dont even think 15s will clear the brakes. I belive Nitto makes a street legal drag radial in bigger sizes.

Yeah, but I have 35 inch coopers on it on the streets, I dont think they have a 35 inch drag radial.

They do have a 315-65R17. How the hell do you read that?

15 inch rims will not fit your truck i don't believe. You can get MT Sportsman S/R on a bigger rim. Or you can go to an E/T Drag, they come on 16" rims.

Hmm I didn't want slicks but damn. Lol, I could probably launch over 2000 rpm with them.
