I know some of you guys are running other wheel and tire combos that I don't have listed in the post, so if you could share that would be great.

Some folks are running other fronts and rears that are for example 27.x tall. I believe Martin (62Nalide) is running 27.x Phoenix fronts. Tim Martin I know has some 27.x M/T's in back, not sure on fronts?

I'd like someone who actually owns and runs this combo to post that they fit:

Quote:
18" vette wheels that are 10.5" wide and have a +53 offset will fit

Lol, there is no need to bump it. It is a sticky, right at the top...

TSW Nurbugrigs (not sure on spelling) and Interlogos in a 18x8" Front 18x9.5" rear make pretty good drag wheels because of the price, ease of fitment and low weight. Best tire size to use for those is 305\45R18 rear with 225/60R18 or 235/55R18 front tires that weigh around 25lbs, low rolling resistance and H or higher rated.

John - My front tires are M&H radials 185/55/17. They are 26" tall. Personally, I would have preferred a 28" tire, but they were the only radial available at the time. They worked well on the street, but you need a lot of extra braking room with these tires.

Weld makes a 15" RT-S wheel that will work with the 15" conversions that are available. Beadlocks are available on the 15" wheel.

Also, 17" Alumastars will work on the front with a spacer and longer studs.

Yes this combo fits perfectly. No spacers required. I sold my set when I bought the ZL1 w/ black wheels.

Be careful when buying these because they do make a 57 offset that does not work without a spacer.
