Get the 40mm offset wheels. You can run a good size tire with that. The wheels in 18" are 25 pounds each.

PSJ and I were discussing this for awhile about getting all 4 corners with those 18's.

From what we were told, they will fit just fine on the back as stated before. Up front you have to grind down the top part of your spindle i believe it was and then they will fit.

i believe it was Sux2bu was the one that has done it before.

You Pretty much need "TIRES" big time, camrojt ran mine stock well Rhino tune and ADM CAI to a nice 13.24 @ 106mph and 2 weeks ago I ran an 8.37 hooking is ok for me. Pretty sure you have a mid 11sec car if you can get it to hook

Sounds good. By this fall Im hoping to gears done ad the full drag set up.. Gotta buy a car hauler before this fall.

We need to get a group buy going on car haulers. I talked to a company that will give a pretty sweet deal on some 16ft-18ft haulers with wood or diamond plate floors and ramps. They have haulers from 900-2000.
