Ok guys, I could use some advise here. Im putting on a set of the V6 brakes and a set of 16" wheels. Who knows how wide of a wheel will fit and what brand would be the best and lightest. Also which drag radial and what size will give me the most traction. Im not real concerned with look because they will only be on long enought to do the TrueStreet 30 mile cruise and two days of racing... Well hopefully I will make it two days with out breaking something. Thanks in advance

Hey bro,

Send a pm to Nine Ball, here on the forum and he will hook you up... He knows all this stuff, wheel offsets tire sizes etc, and has a million contacts... He sold me my wheels and told me what tires to get at a place that sold them cheaper than he could get them...

His name is Tony, great guy, tell him I sent you...

Well we talked to Texas Speed at the LS Fest right my dad cooked his 408 and the don't have anything. We talked to ERL all week because the had the perfect engine sitting on the shelf that they built for a guy in Canada but he wouldn't pay for it! So they said if he didn't pay by Friday they would sell it to us. But I guess the guy nutted up and paid for it so we are SOL.
