Got home from and sitting on my porch were the ARE 767 rims. Both rims were 83 bucks to the door from Summitt. Jack the car up to make sure the backspacing was good and it is. They sit just inside the fenderwall just like the factory rims fit. So that means they do not stick out and the rims measure 15-8. The tire I am going with is the Bf goodrich 235/60/15. After a lot of thought I decided to go with this tire mainly because it has alot of sidewall and it measures 8 inches wide. The nitto 275/40/15 I currently have on the car measure 10.5 and they are just a little to wide for a mostly stock Bullitt. I will be going to the track within the next month to get numbers. But I have a feeling with this tire it will match perfectly with the Bullitts stock hp. Ray thanks for making me think about tire width your right a 10 inch tire is just a little to much for a stock bullitt.

NOMAD,I think you will break the stock 28 spline axles before you do in the torque boxes! They have been known to break with drag radials.I know of a guy in Maryland who broke two pair,on Nitto DRs,with a 98 GT,13.9 sec. car!
Well that's happened to my buddy Tim Teal, mustang site,with his 98 GT. I didn't have any trouble with my 85 LX either,when it still had the 7.5 rear with 3.73 gear and slicks. BUT,I got wise and swapped in a built 9 inch Ford unit,12 years ago,and won't have to worry about that anymore.
