    Hi all, I'm awaiting the arrival of my Detroit Speed Engineering minitubs, and had a couple questions for anyone using them on their project. I'd like to run a 15x10 rim and was wanderin what tires and backspacing you guys know would fill up the wheel well nicely. My buddy told me a 315/35 would work but I can't find it on a 15 inch rim, only a 17 inch rim. So what tire could I run on the 15 to compare to the 315/35?

    DSE designed those tubs for autocross guys to run modern wide high performance tires. I run a 18x12 with 335 tires.

    On a 15" rim I'm thinking drag radials and slicks is all you're gonna find wide.

    Did you know You can run a 15x10 rim with a decent size tire without mini tubs

    Really? do you know how wide you can get away with Badazz? I was thinking of the DSE route as well, just looks like a lot of work

    Just got mini tubs and sfc's as well, it will take some work for sure but nothing like the metal work a lot of builders are going through, I'm going with mini tubs so that there's room to spare, rolling the fenders isn't option for me.

    To get the right look, odds are you will have to roll or cut the lips to fit a 335 even with mini-tubs. People will say they have installed 315s on stock tubs. I personally used a 295 with 275 being about the perfect size.
