My buddy has a set of 26x10.5 ET Streets I am going to be using for my car. On MT's website it suggests an 8" rim width. My questions are what rim width would work best with these tires? What type of rim would be suitable for my car with the stock studs? What backspacing do I need for proper fitment? I have a 02 GT live axle in my car.

Thanks in advance,
Razor.

A 15x8" rim would work best IMO. 5.5" BS.
a 15x10" would need a 6.5" BS

Thanks bro.;) I'm actually trying to figure out how to get around using extended axle studs now. There has got to be an offset or other type of wheels that will solve this issue. Any thoughts?

No problem
If you go that route, check the local recycler or call MPS and see how much they want for 2 rims off a wrecked V6...

Ok let me help you on that one. Im 99% sure that the V6 rims are 6.5 for the old ones and 7 for the new ones. Not sure if that will help you any.

Wow, someone else posted a pic of my car!

The rims on the car are 15x7's I am running a 26x9.5x15 Hoosier Quick Time Pro on them.

Us hybrids gotta stick together:D
Do you think the 26x10.5x15s that he's getting from his buddy would be too wide? Do the 9.5s bulge alot on the 7" rim?

Its really not too bad with the 9.5, a 10.5 may be pushing it a little. It would work, but you are probably better off to go with a 8" or 9".

FWIW,I bought a used set of these http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?part=ARE-7675866 w/some 26x10.5x15" e.t. streets still on them off Calwyglfer. He was running them on his '98 Cobra w/'01 Cobra motor on the stock studs w/Superior 31 spline axles,without any modifications. They are not the lightest wheel,but are a cheap way to mount some e.t. streets.
I actually ran those same wheels with ET streets when I had my 99 R/T Dakota. It's amazing how it would dead hook even with the S/C on it.
