Dark Star 15x8 wheels and Mickey Thompson slicks test fit

Justin

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
Got around to test fitting my new drag wheels. Went with this size so I wouldn't have to cut the sway bar brackets and run relocation brackets. I got the clearance I need to run these. And I must say they look BAD A$$!!

Weight of the wheel and tire...only 39.5lbs!!!

Looks nice! Those are bias ply right? Out of curiosity would you need to cut the sway bar brackets and get relocation brackets for this setup? http://www.brenspeed.com/silverdragpack.html

Thanks.

if you go wider with a 15" the wheel will hit the sway bar. the relocation bracket bings it in closer to the the axle so the wheel will clear it.

Nice run......glad to see you didn't have to give up your title! LOL
lol that guy says that about every other pair of cars that line up....gets pretty old. I am hoping my new wheel and tire set up will get my 60 foot down in the 1.6's or better.

Those wheels are really nice!

I was skeptical about the narrowness, but seeing as how it is a full slick, it ought to rip!

Get that tune and CAI and get your butt to the track Mister!
