    Actually, you went backwards. You'd be better off with 16's or 17's on Drag Radials out back than what you've got on there now. Your '60 time might very well disappoint you.

    Good luck!

    Exactly, bigger wheels are horrible for drag racing, they are lacking sidewall, plus those wheels are alot heavier than the wheels you pulled off, so you just added recipricating weight to the car. They will actually slow you down a tenth or so.

    The two key words in my post to you were, Drag Radials along with the smaller diameter rims.

    Could it be that it's harder to spin them over is because of the above mentioned by FBJ(more rotating weight, etc etc)?

    You went backwards.

    That's because they are heavier and harder to turn over, now you need more power

    Yes they are a little heavier than stock rims but I think its because I went from roughly 17" of total rubber contact to 22" of rubber contact!! And yes more power is in the works!!
