SLICKS AND SKINNYS OPTIONS?

Our shop car has all the power it needs to brake deep into the 11's and we are slipping and sliding all over the track with the heavy, narrow and hard stock tires. I have had good luck with ccws in the past but what are the fastest 2010 camaros running? Where did you get your wheels? Looking to buy asap new or used.

I was able to crack off a 10.99 @ 125 with my set of 18" drag radials. Which are now up for sale in the classified section. I have since ordered a set of custom 17" Bogarts with Hoosier slicks. They should be here Friday.

I am a WD dealer with Bogart (makes it nice since they are right up the street)i would not recommend driving Bogarts on the street. the Alloy that they are made from is too soft for the street and they bend, Bogar will even tell you that

Get a hold of Steve at SJM (he is a member here on Camaro 5) and have him hook you up with a set of 17" Bogarts for the rear. The SST Camaro uses a set of 18" Forgelines with 345 MT DR's but will also utilize a set of 17" Bogarts with slicks for certain tracks.

I got my Bogarts from Steve at SJM. They normally take a month but he had them built in two weeks. And a week to ship. If I had known they were comming from AZ I would have two dayed them. Steve is awesome to deal with. The fitment is supposed to be outstanding. The final price with shipping for the two rears was $1500 and the $200 each for my slicks. As opposed to the 18"s which were $600 for both and the $300 each for the M & H dr's. I don't not intend to drive the Bogarts on the road. They are track only as I trailer the car.

There are a few guys who are looking to sell the V6 brakes. I posted something in the classifieds a while back and there were a few guys who chimed in. I ended up opted for the 17"s. There are a few guys who have gone to the 16" rear. Bigdog on here is one of them. Gd luck

What size bogart 17"s would you need to fit 345 DR's or slicks and would you need to mod the car in any way to fit them?

I didn't get to choose a width when I got my wheels.If they are to wide I know they'll hit the brakes line. As it is right now, I think they are 10.5" wide and that puts them about 2.5" from the mounted brake line.
