Drag use only wheels

I'm looking for a cheap set (2) of 18x11 wheels to mount a set of slicks on... Any thoughts?

forgestar & a drag radial is a great combo unless your really set on a full slick.

For low cost you can go with the C6 Z06 front wheels. 18X9.5 with a 40MM offset. 40MM offset is only used on the Z06's
You can find them on ebay and other sources.
Another alternative is the TSW Nurburgrings. They are very light (lighter than the F14 Forgestars).
But the widest tire you can run with the Nurburgrings is 305/45/18" drag radials. But this a very popular size drag radial to run.
Check out Padre's build post # 16 for his 18" Nurburgring setup. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...t=Nurburgrings


But they're not 18x11s.
