How about these wheels for drag racing

The don't look like your typical drag wheel but with the weight I cant help but give these a second look. With the 18x9.5 weighing in at 21.4 pounds and the 18x8.5" fronts coming in around 19 pounds. I thought these would be perfect. Thoughts? Offset is +35 for front and rear wheels.

305/45/18 or a 315/35/18?

They look good. Will a 305 fit on a 9.5" rim? And can you get them in the correct bolt pattern?

A 275 or 285 would sit more flush. I'm running a 305 on my 11".

R u looking at the M/T website? Yeah just watch your tire heights unless that doesn't matter. Cause the 235 is being measured off of a 7.5" wheel if u put on 9.5" a lot of stretch I would think and height loss.
