I have 295/35 18 on the rear now and would like to see someones with 315's on the rear, if so, did you have to use a spacer ?

My 315 Nitto DRs easily fit on the stock rim with no spacers. As you can see in the photo, they are not nearly as wide as your typical 315 tire:

It is a Ford Racing Cobra "R" Wing, and a Ford Racing Fiberglass hood,
I would recomend if you want any of this parts, to spend the extra money and get the Ford stuff not any of these cheap knock offs, I can tell you now,

the Ford body dealerships are absolutly FED UP! with knock off crap, when I was calling around before I Ordered the componits to get painting prices,

All, and I mean all of the body shops I talked to wanted NO part of any after market stuff due to how bad most of it fits, the only way I was able to get it done was by assuring them I would buy the Ford racing parts. even then, some fitting had to be done with the hood to make it fit right, the wing was no trouble at all.

Sweet looking tires there. How do you like the Drag radials? What tire are you running up front? I have exactly the same wheels (carryover from the 01 I traded in). I am looking for new tires for the rear since they are quite worn out. Just curious if you favor the drag radials over the run of the mill high performace type in the rear. I am definately considering drag radials for my next tire purchase as well as other types.
