I just got my long awaited set of BFGoodrich DRAG RADIALS size 235-60-15.
I am sure they will be a little high (I thought at first they were 235-50-15) but I am installing them tomorow.
I am sure that with the sqating common to our Z's (I have an '82)the tire will rub with the fender lip.
What can I do to prevent this

I am really eager to try those tires, I've heard times of 1.6 on the 60' and 9's have been attained with those tires.

I'll try to keep you all posted on what happens with the tires.

A good set of gas charged shocks is suppose to prevent the squating. I put a cheape set from Auto Zone on mine made a big difference. Of course my old shocks were so worn they fell apart when I removed them. I don't notice any suatting on my 75 280z 2+2.
