I have 9" from the more near car frame to the front of the disk where the rim sit/bolt...

The tire i have currently (kumho), the "rubber" where the tread are is 12", i
think i cant use very larger than this i guess ?

As for the car, its hooked for power, but still need to find good tire size for it :-)

when they mesure 26,5 its the total size from the tire ?

Do you know if 15LT will fit ? how mutch inner spacing have a 15LT rim,
not sure if the disk will fit in it ?

I'd recommend a rear tire 11" wide(or 10 if you plan on corners) and 26.5" tall with the fronts being 7" wide( or 9 if you plan on corners) and 26.5" tall. Do not rely on the common 255/50/16 or what ever. You need to choose a tire that lists its dimensions.

Your best bet is to go to the tire shop if you can't measure backspacing. It is easy to do though. Just jack up the car, take the tire off and measure the distance from the rim mounting flange to the inner fender. Subtract 1" to be safe.

Summit has some tires to choose from but I don't think you will ever hook 800+ supercharged HP without some excellent suspension and slicks.
