M&H 325-45R17 DR

Anybody know if these will fit in the wheel well? The 28" high is fine but 11.3" tread width and 12.6 section width???

What size rim are you putting it on? My buddy is running this on the 17x10" welds and it fits fine. Had issues with the rim hitting his LCA and res on his coilovers though.

I would be running them on 17x10 Bogarts. Currently I run 28/10x17 Hoosier slicks and have no problem with the LCA and the Bogarts.

Yep, those are 17x10 Welds on my car above. They fit good and look great, but have been known to contact the LCA when the suspension is compressed, which is why Weld recommends using our TCA028 or TCA029 LCA's with them. The Bogarts fit even better, never heard of anyone having LCA contact issues with the Bogarts. The only drawback is the Bogarts are pretty much a track-only wheel....not very streetable.

Personally, on my own car, I'm now using the DRP007 Drag Race Suspension Package (without the brake upgrade). This kit was designed for use with 15" drag wheels, so this gives a LOT of clearance around the LCA's. Plus, you get the benefit of the double-adjustable Strange coilovers.
