Smile Lone Star tire size

I'm posting here because I think there are more Lone Star Cobras in Tx.

My question is "what is the largest tire you can get under your LS with a 8.8 rear end".
Now, I'm running a 26" (255/50-16") tire but would like to buy a pair of BFG drag radials and a pair of 15" x 10" rims. The 325s are 28" in diameter. I'm willing to narrow my rear end 2" to 2 1/2" to make the 10" rims with 325s work.

But before I spend a bunch of money I would like to see if anyone is running 325s. I concerned the tire will be to tall. I think I have front and rear wheel well clearance but maybe not the height.

I can buy 275/50-15 and they will fit but I afraid they may not fill out the 10" rims. 295 would work but I can not find a good 295 tire.

Anyone with some answers? Suggestion?

I'm running 295/50-16 Mickey Thompson ET Street radials on 9-1/2 rims. They are 27.9" tall.

Barnsnake what rear end do you have? Are you using a four link with coil overs?

Thanks
Dwight
