Hi Guys, ive got a set of 15" x 8" and 15"x4" drag rims and i want to run fats on the back. My question is what is the largest tyre some one has run on an E series? im looking at a 275 but their about 11" across and the guard has about 12" clearance. i am running airshocks so i can pump it right up but i would prefer not to. any help would be great.

sweet s**t! ive seen the episode on top gear with the xr5 and when they where lifting the back wheel off the ground on a wet track taking corners i was impressed. speaking of back wheels (back on topic) what brand are you running, i think i may need something sticky. ive got some M/T slicks 11.5 x 26 but i think i may run some street tyre's giving her that pro street look. skinny front big back, but i dont want to pay a fortune for them.

Your spec sheet looks good whats your rwk? do you still manage to smoke the fats when putting the power down. i really want traction rather than a burnout car.
