Ok . And what about budget wheels for the track? Also, would i be able to just swap the new wheels and tires for the stock ones at the track?

Also some links at the top of the sticky would be very helpful. Thanks guys

Finally back...well almost

Havent posted in forever. Car has been down 2 years plus with sheared axle bolts....Gforce engineering 9" rear setup wiht 1500hp Outlaw axles. Just been busy doing other hobbies.

Car was on the dyno today on really old 305/30 Michelins....road course setup with leaky Forgeliine wheels.

Anyway, the tired ass tires were slipping on the dyno at 650hp as soon as the boost from twins came on. Tuner could not check the integrity of the James Karger tune.

Needing an drag setup anyway. I have cts-V calipers on the front and stock in the back But am running a Pedders Justice road course suspension.

Im happy with 18" welds and what ever the latest greatest drag radial setup is.

Im thinking 18" welds wont need mods with my setup....

My new tuner needs to get traction too the dyno to finish my car.

Its an LSX 427 built by Erik Koenig of Hke Racing with twin PTE 6766 turbos. Original tune was at 1281rwhp on the fresh road course set up many years ago. The tires are cracked and old from sitting. The rears are very low tread and traction due to.....well...duh!

I figured its time to get a go fast in a straight line seup. I will be re sealing the Forgelines and setting up new road course tires. What do you guys recommend for the best , no hassle setup. Liking Welds and M&H or whatever

Buy once cry once. Glad to be almost back... I was number 2 on the HP list many years ago.....on a slipping dyno then lol

Thanks

I haven't been on here in a long time either. 😑 I'm actually thinking of selling my baby, as I'm lucky to drive it twice/month these days. It mostly sits under a car cover with a battery tender hooked up. 'Only 1K miles put on since the new engine, yet it [finally] runs flawlessly, like a dream. 'Wonder how much I could get for it? 🤔

17” works well too.
But for a manual tranny car,I would go with a bias ply tire and even go with the 15” wheels conversion because it would absorbed the shock load of a manual tranny car way better than a radial tire.More sidewall the better.

Does anyone have any info on the Forgestar drag race wheels? Digging the F14’s and I have seen pictures of ZL1s with them on, but I dont know if they are lowered.

Worried about the control arms and or end links from the ZL1 sway bars contacting in the barrel. Trying to decide between them and a set of Racestars

Edit: I have emailed Forgestar for more info but have yet to hear back. I know 18’s will work but feel 17’s will allow for better 60fts with a manual

Edit: I just ordered 305/45 R18 on the rear and 245/50 R18 for the front based on user mlee's setup on page 7, hopefully there will be no issues.

I could never find this setup on a White ZL1 so here is the final result for anyone who is interested!



I just ordered some Dark Star 18x8.5 and 18x10.5 wheels, my ZL1 is stock ride height and I plan on ordering a NT555RII 305/45 R18 for the rear but I am totally stumped on what to get for the front without setting off all the alerts for height differences.

Was hoping to be able to order a NT555 G2 for the front for a more daily driver setup.

Anyone have any idea what size to get for the front? Or if I have to change the rear size to make it work?

I like the wheels and tires set up of your Camaro. The black rims match the car's white exterior. How was your experience with the NT555 tires so far?
