Default Drag Pack poll

I'm working on providing an affordable, lightweight drag pack option for the street/strip guys/gals that don't want to make any changes to their cars other than wheels to their street cars.


In a size 18", what width would you prefer for a drag pack for the rear of your c7?

I like the smallest and lightweight. What are the plans for tires on each wheel option ?

Most definitely a 12". Im at 800+ HP and need every inch I can get, and don't really want to do a 15" conversion. If I could find something that looked like a C6Z wheel design in 18"x12" with an offset of +59 and a set of 18"x6" fronts with an offset of +43, in black or black chrome, I would be all over it assuming the price is not crazy!

Forgestar just came out with a F14 Drag Pack for the C7.

I just received my 5X18's yesterday. Weight is 18.4 lbs.

They clear the J56 iron brakes on the Z06.

The rears can be had in 11 or 12 in.

Weight is right at 25 lbs. for the 12X18.

That should be an option. I'm hoping they will be around 2K+ for all 4 and as light as possible.

Not sure yet buddy. But it looks like M&H for front is a player. I'd rather a 26" tire though.

They do.

M/T Sportsman SR fronts 26X6.

This will take 19-20 lbs. off each front corner of the Z06.

Contact Jake at Vibe Motorsports.

Forgestar sent me a 17 In. Drag Pack to test fit.

Neither the fronts or rears would clear the calipers.

So, now we have the 18's. Maybe that's what you were told.

Same they told me.
I guess Jesse you're the test mule.
I'll pursue my option and see if we can get several options the c7 crowd.
We'll give it some more time but my gut is that poll will reveal that everyone wants different sizes. I think they can accommodate all diameters and a few different styles as long as the 1st set fits and clears.
