18 inch drag rims?
 
Hey everyone, I'm looking to get two rear 18 inch rims for the track. What would be a good size rim? Also is there certain brands I should consider?

Thank you.

Looks like you can get an 18x10.5 under the rear. Look at the Weld RT-S wheels. They have an offering for the 18 and a 17 inch. I know there is a dealer on here that will quote you. Try thr guys at PTS.
Back space would be 7.2 inches on the 18 and 7.3 on the 17.
Hope this helps your search.

I've been selling a lot of Forgestar F14 wheels, 18x10 sizing. Lightweight, good looking wheels. These work perfectly with the 305/45-18 drag radials on the market.

Nine Ball, I know I will be ordering a set of those in 20s once you get the cores in again. Would be nice to have a drag set of the same rim. For 18s, would it take the same amount of time to get the rims? I told you about the deadline I have there. Automotion is one of the biggest car meets in Wisconsin, and I could use traction! :P

18s are in stock, they are taking about 5 weeks to build at the moment. I have a couple customers with a full set of 20s and matching 18 rears w/ drag radials. Looks pretty cool!

Real men still use the stock 20's up front! Well, at least I do.

I thought you were on the Bogarts?? After these NT05Rs are toast...I will be going this route. What tires are you guys having good luck with on the 18s?

I just run the 17" Bogart rears. I had great luck with the 18" M & H racemaster drag radial in a 275.

What are you running on the Bogarts? With a dedicated set of track wheels, I was thinking about slicks!

28 x 10 x 17 hoosier bias ply slick. Makes for an interesting ride!

Would C5 z06 rims work? Hard time finding any c6 rims.
