Watch as we install a set of 15x10 SVE Drag Wheels on this Fox Body Mustang. See what modifications are needed for clearance with 275/50/15 tires. The perfect set up for a weekend of drag racing in your Stang!!
We're going to show you what it takes to put a set of SVE drag wheels on your '87 to '93 Fox Mustang. First thing you'll need to do is convert to five lug using something like our Fox style rotor and drum five lug conversion kit, available at latemodelrestoration.com.
The 15 inch wheels will bolt right on over the Fox style rotor conversion, along with the SN95 '94 to '04 V6 and GT brakes. If you're running SN95 Cobra brakes, you will need 17 inch front wheels.
To fit a 15 x 10 with a 275 50 15 tire on the back of your Fox, you will absolutely have to remove the quad shock. Then you can mount the wheel up and lower the car down to ride height, and check the inner wheel well for clearance. Every car is a little different, and on ours, we did have to massage the front inside of the wheel well.
The outer fender lip will need to be rolled. There's several different ways to do this. Pick your poison. Just be sure not to mess up your paint.
Bolt your wheels up, and enjoy the aggressive look that set of SVE drag wheels will give your Fox Mustang.
What does it take to add a set of 15x10 drag wheels to my Fox Mustang? This is a common question we get here at LatemodelRestoration.com; so Jmac wanted to show you guys what it took to install a set of 15x10 SVE Drag Wheels on a Fox Body Mustang using 275/50/15 tires. The obvious first step was to do a 5 lug swap/conversion. If you need more information on this click the following link - Fox Body Mustang 5 Lug Conversion.
After completing the 5 lug conversion, the next step is to remove the quad shock. Once this is complete it is time for some test fitment. After some quick fitment we found that we had to "massage" the inner wheel well with our trusty big hammer. This cleared up some room for the wider wheel and tire combo. The final step is to roll the fender lip. We suggest having a professional preform this to avoid any damage to the paint and to ensure it doesn't rub the tire.
To help you convert your Mustang from 4 lug to 5 lug and install a set of SVE Drag Wheels, we created the "Fox Body Kits" seen below. They include everything you need to complete a 5 lug swap and it includes your choice of SVE Drag Wheels. These kits come in both a 28 and 31 spline axle option. This kits will strengthen your rear end with the included stronger than factory axles. It also will help you get your power to the ground with the included 275/50/15 Mickey Thompson Drag Radials. These kits are the ultimate drag strip addition to any Foxbody Mustang.
