You can go as wide as you want if youre willing to pay. The best thing to do is a taller sidewall, softer shocks, change slicks to drag radials, roll the inner fender with a fender lip roller, (eastwood) and youre on your way. If you are serious about racing, a new set of MONO leaf springs may be the way to go. I learned this after buying multi,
