    Drag wheels/tires

    I'm looking for some track wheels/tires for my truck. After just buying a new set of tires for my 20s, I don't want to burn all the rubber off those so I'm looking for at least a DOT, maybe a slick. What are most you guys running out there? I can't figure anything out because my truck has a 2/4 lowering kit and the wheels are on 265/50/20s and that's a 30.5" tire.. so most likely I'll have to get a smaller front wheel too where my front end won't be a lot higher. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

    get some stock 16s and the hosier slicks. hook great, last, and are 28'' tall so wont look so bad on the truck. and they can be run tubeless. If it is a track only setup, go slicks. my

    The best advice I have ever heard:... Only take B( . Y . )ST advice from someone that is CURRENTLY running a turbo setup close to, or bigger than what you want......

    for a boosted application DRs all the way. i run a 295/65/15 MT DRs. you can run 15s and they are cheaper then other size tires.

    for skinnies you can run colorado spares. they are 16x4 and M&H makes the 27" front skinnies.
