Rims arn't that expensive...I'd get a set of 15"X15" rims and mount the slicks on them.

A 26.0" x10.0" drag slick will not blow out to fit a 15" wide rim. At least the Hoosier slicks i got wont. They are currently on a offset 15"x10.0" rim that is giving me a clearence problem.

What does Hoosier say ??

Most tire companies have a recommendation on rim widths. I woul follow the recommendations and then buy a set that the offset will allow you to fit them to your vehicle.
