Max Slick Size
My 85Camaro is strictly a drag car. It has not been back-halfed or had really any work done on the suspension except air bags. I'm running 15 inch wheels with 10 inch slicks, not sure the diameter. I have swapped engines and the new engine has about 150 more hp than the old one. I need to be able to put on bigger tires but I don't know how big I can go. If anybody has any ideas, I would appreciate it.

I've seen those 10.5 guys launch wheels up all the time. That means they are flat hooked up. It's a matter of tuning what ya have. It just takes a tape measure to find your diameter. Measure from ground to top of slick 6:00 / 12:00 for true tire loaded diameter. 9:00 / 3:00 will give you an inaccurate measure.
