K. I see. Thanks I'm still just undecided. Im running stock brakes. Loving the Welds but I feel imma be pulling to much. And I'd like to fit 235/50 in there. Otherwise my only option is 15x7 n 225/50. :ugh:
use 15x8 welds with the 235/50/15 toyo r888s
the 50 series side wall is great for drag racing

and the tire is small enough in diameter to fit well
and stiff enough for the turns

for pure drag racing the 7" rim may allow more side wall flex and better traction on the strip
but turn in and handling will suffer

i ran the 8" rim and they stuck like glue
use track bite or tire conditioner

15x8. 35mm. Going to throw on 235/50 r888. Hoping minimum body work is needed. Should be coming in sometime next week. What do you guys think?

i like to keep the tires on the street about 33psi hot

22-26psi at the drags after burnout
[can be as low as 17-20psi on slippery 1/8mile strips]
keep pressure higher for higher 1/4mile terminal speed stability

36-38 psi hot for mountain runs
i started out at 28psi cold and ended up at 32psi hot for serious technical tracks

Finally got the wheels put on.. loving how they look :cool2: these are 15s had to shave calipers just a tad it's not something I WANTED to do but it was such a small amount and at this point I really wanted the wheels on I'm really contemplating buying a set in 16s for daily driving I think they will look great on the car.. heading to the track on Friday (Ratchet Friday) Raceway park englishtown if anyone reading this by any chance is heading out this week send me a message... let me know what you guys think?
