    i have a buddy with a gt500 08... he really never race from a 1st gear or even 2nd go...car dosnt grip...so he does 60 rolls... a gtr down here called him out from a 40 so my buddy told him ok but after give me my 60 guy said ok my buddy raced him and spun all over the place he lines up again and the gtr said he's ok dosnt want to race(big pu**y)...so im buying my buddy some wheels and tires so he can call him out again and record it this time ...20 roll...gt500 makes 590 hp....

    the set up i came across craigslist is 2 weld magnums 15x8....its a 26.0/8.5-15m/t.....ill try and post up a pick.... i know in the lightning world we need to grind down our clipers...and mustang with wide tires need to relocate the sway bay and shave down the mount....but would this be need since the tire is a 8.5

    thnkas in advance

    15x8's should bolt right up. 10" wide wheels require a sway bar relocate.

    8.5" will be close, and may not fit. Certain 8's fit, but can't say for sure on 8.5's.

    Those may be overkill at his power level for a street car, I'm guessing he is still on the crap stock tires? 555r will be enough for some roll ons.
