That is the correct size slick but you can run a size wider. I have 26x11.5x15 hoosier qtps mounted on weld prostar 15x8 rims and they fit just fine, i cant wait to try them at the track. The tire you listed also will fit best with a 15x8 wheel and the backspacing you want is 4.5

Wider huh... Well what's the optimal tire/wheel size because it seems that everyone is running something different.

most common is a 26x10.5x15 on a 15x8 rim with 4.5 bs. the only reason im running slightly wider is becase thats what the guy had when i bought them from him. JayC is running the same tire setup i have on 15x8 rims with no problems

it also depends on the gears you have if you need a taller tire or not, you can go with a 28inch tall tire, especially if going with forced induction.

bolt pattern is to big. our cars are 5x 4.5 and i think that bs is a little shallow

I say that because I found these:

Weld Prostars
15x8
15x3.5
Tires 28x10.5
Tires have two passes
front tires are new
