haha not with those bullits on that car.....i raced once with my chrome cobras on, added 3 tenths to my quarter time,

so lets see

Cold air intake, steeda underdrives, j-mod, flowmaster cat back and stock 15" wheels i ran a 15.43

with the 17" wheels

my best time was a 15.72 so if i were you, id find some good sticky stock size tires and run those

but still probably low 15's

Soo, what you are telling me is my 14.48 could be a 14.1 if I took the 17x9s off? I find that hard to believe...was there a weather difference, etc? that would place my car at a 14.1 N/A all motor on a stock T/C and nonTL 3.08s...I don't buy it.



and I say you could reach a 14.9

i bet with a "higher powered" car, it makes less of a difference,

but i notice it a lot on a stock car, both runs were about a month apart on a friday night right around 50 degrees, and kinda dry outside. so weather was kinda close the only other variable would be the kind of gas i had in the car, with the 15's on i ran premium, i know it doesnt make a difference but i noticed my car runs better with it, and then with the 17's i ran regular gas.

but if you think about it, my chrome wheels each alone weigh 27lbs, and then add a tire on top of that?? what about 40 lbs probably??

alright so a stock 15" wheel and tire is probably 25lbs each

alright 15x4= 60lbs more

i can say with my girlfriend in the car i went from a 15.4 to a 15.9 on the same night at the track.

ive been told its not so much the extra weight but the rotating mass that makes the difference...

i guess why do all the guys run smaller wheels (ie 15") on faster drag cars, one the tires but i bet also its the weight.

I'll second the low low 15s/high 14's motion.


Who wants to guess what I'll run after the engine swap??
400-ish RWHP + 100 shot of N2O through an M5R2 and a 3.27 TL rear end and probably straight pipes

If I can't get some new wheels and tires in time, I'll still be running on snow tires!

Well... considering you'll have to row through the gears, I'll guess 16 flat. Anybody that's ever driven an m5r2 knows exactly what I'm talking about.
