I want to take the 17" fronts (extra pair) and use them in the rear with drag radials. Will they fit? What is the widest tire that fits the rear? I have a chance at some BFG drag radials, but I'm afraid they may be too wide.

Yes they will fit, when I had the weights from the rims put on the inside of the rims. I took one of the rear wheels and put it on the front, they work, no clearence problems.

The fronts will bolt directly on the rears without any problems. If you want to mount drag tires on them the 275/40x17 size fits perfectly. BFG makes them and I believe Nitro makes that size also.

I borowed a pair of fronts with 315 BFG's from Turbo ZO6. Thay worked fine(1.765 60')there is a slight tire bulge with the 315 buy they were fine on the ride to the track at 35psi. Ric
