my 18" street/drag setup

Forgestar F14's in Textured Gunmetal finish

18x9.5 front
18x11 rear

Wheels were ordered from Tony at Deviate Motoring a well known vendor here (Nine Ball). Tony knows his stuff, the wheels fit great.

Tires
275/45 front with Bridgestone Potenza re050a from Sears and
325/40 M+H Racemaster drag radials from Summit racing.

This combo is within .1" of stock tire height front and rear.
Forgestars are very light for the price, complete set tires and wheels are 29lbs lighter than stock ZL1 five spokes and GY's.

Main reason was consistency and traction at the track, Car is M6.
However,the rears hook so much better on the street, 1st gear is useable now and second isn't a crapshoot.
With wide fronts I can go to a regular street tire in the rear and run them all summer if desired.
Already had an awesome ride for a performance car, it now feels like a 200mph Caddy.
Textured gunmetal and Ashen Grey is all business and hides brake dust well too!
