All the TABLES and tire manufacturers say 11 inches. If one group of cars likes 11.5, that's just fine. Maybe that is for drag racing?

10.5 is the min and a lot of guys run 315's on 10.5's. I think 11's and definitely 11.5 wheels are very hard to find and are mostly made to order at a HUGE expense. Half an inch does not sound like much but it seems to make a difference in the tire and wheel world.
