Looks like more attention is towards buying your stocks wheels than to your new Forgestars.

19 lbs Rims and would you say about 30 lbs tires. That is great 49 lbs total.

With the 18x10 are you planning to road race as well? I am considering a narrower front wheel and taller 28" tires for drag strip. Thank you for posting. Your pictures are helping me decide on my set up.

I run the 305/35-18 at the track and they are definitely shorter than stock..probably 3" shorter. Next time I will get 305/45-18. With a 6spd car it probably is of no consequence, but with an auto the transmission shifts at weird rpm due to the wheel speed being different than indicated. Most times it is fine.

yes i plan to drag race at z max and road coarse the car at vir, and yes they make these wheels in 18 19 20 & 22 up to 12" wide in your offset of choice or custom build in other words. i am not going to lower the car because it wont stay like this,i will be back and forth with the 18" and 20 "now offset for front no more then 30+ mm on a 18 " more and it will hit steering spindle upper bracket . offset for rear still good 39+mm. tire height for 18" is 26.42 and 20" is 28.58 which gives a little more gear in the quarter mile run with smaller size. hope i this helps
