there are 15" wheels out there that will clear svt brakes. you might need a small spacer for some of them, others not.

really? i would love to put 15s on it.. any idea which ones they are? and how big of spacers.. like i said i want wide.. i have a much stronger bracket that im making for the tranny so i dont think there is going to be much a weak spot on my car so i can launch her good if i can get some good tires..

why do you want such wide rims? FWD slicks don't require it.. 7" wide is all you need, even 6.5" is acceptable.

rota slips, centerline storms are a couple 15" rims that come to mind that will fit over SVT brakes

because i know that in the high setting it will spin 7 in slicks.. i have seen cars with less hp and alot less tq spin 7 in slicks.. my theory is wider gives me a bigger contact patch and better chance that i hook up my power..

part #3015 is the right size for our cars. The measured rim size is +/- one inch variance. I doubt you will break them loose. Try turning the boost down just a bit for 1st if you do. But I really don't think you'll have to.

i would agree with you for the most part except im hing so much torque it just spins everything at any speed... and the whole point of trying to do this is that i dont want to turn down the boost.. i know jareds carr from top speed is running less tq than me and he spins slicks in 3rd gear...

Yeah but he also has over 100more whp which means he is carrying his torque all the way until redline. Yours would not spin as bad. You may only have 300whq at 7k whereas he would still have close to 400.

nope thats wrong... i have 412wtq at 5500rpm and it holds until 6800.. i hit full boost right about 3200rpm.. so im gettting full power by 4k and it holds and starts to fall off at 6800..
