I'm ready to pull the trigger on my wheels, but still researching what tire will actually fit.

Thanks,

I honestly donít know lol havenít picked up car yet. Thatís the pic shop sent me after install. They were gonna lower and align it then do some wiring of electronics then dyno tune. Hopefully be ready this week and Iíll let you know. FYI call Carlyle they will fix you up!

What tires are these? I am running the 295 55 15 et streets and they didnt hook at all with 1024WHP or even 880WHP on my detuned map.

1 - do a 15" conversion to the car
2 - Buy an 18" setup for the street / roll racing
3 - Buy a 15" setup for the strip

I think this is my best bet to check all my boxes. Its not the cheapest solution, but I fully understand paying to play.

Unreal, what wheels and tires do you use for your 15" setup?
I went with a set of Signature forged rims SV104s... Its lighter and will provide enough street strip performance for me........ I hope!

What are guys paying for the 15" conversion ??

Possibly a little bit more on a C7. Figure drag spindle kit is about $2500 alone. I doubt you would get wheels and tires for $2500, unless you only did the rears and did not do skinnies up front.
