We run the 18" C5 Z06 wheel with the M/T drag radial (305/45/18) with great success. Our car generally cuts 1.54's-1.55's with ease.

Dan,

I think we've got the wheel/tire combo figured out.....and I have no doubt the 60' times will drop like a rock from them.

What I think you, I and Randy ( any M6 car for that matter ) need to be very worried about is the halfshafts.

A6 cars have alot less shock to the drivetrain than the M6 cars....I'd be willing to bet you one of us goes home on a trailer with a busted halfshaft with the slicks.

Slicks are going to give you the best shot NOT to break anything. They absorb the most impact and are the gentlest on the drivetrain. Its the drag radials that will break parts. They have no give at all and with an 18" wheel that all you will get are drag radials. Even with the 17" Bogarts, you only get one option for a full slick and the rest of the options are drag radials. The A6 car will be fine with either. Its the M6 car that may go home limping!

Looks like some 1,000 HP axles are going on the car first!

my axles withstood multiple launches on drag radials last year and they were stock... with much more power than you have currently. just a thought.

You can't run a C5 Z06 wheel without spacers. They never came in a +40 offset. C6 yes, C5 no. I have C5 like BMR.

C6 wheels are the way to go. I found a screaming deal on C5 Z06 wheels and now I'm stuck with finding the right spacer (which I think I have) and possibly swapping out the lugs.
