Question How small a wheel could I use with LT brakes?

Hello fellow drag racers,

It would be a great advantage to go smaller than the custom 17" Bogarts that I currently use with drag slicks on my SS. If I dispense with the huge rear SS Brembos for lesser diameter rotors and corresponding calipers used on the LT Camaro, might it be possible to mount 15" wheels? And what further modifications would be needed? The smaller the better in this case means less rotational mass, bigger drag slicks, and better hooking for faster ETs. Perhaps some tubbing would be beneficial. Have any of you tubbed out your rear wheel wells?

I am running in the middle tens now on Hoosier 17"s. I want to go faster. You know the feeling...
