    15s or 17s?

    Ive been trying to find a nice set of black 15s for bigger sidewall but its looking almost impossible. Im putting these on my 1990 TA and im running about 750 horse on nitrous 550-600 on motor. It will be taken to the strip no and again but 70% will be on road use. Is it really going to be that worth it to settle with 15s? Let me know your opinions. Im going to run mickey ts ET street radials.

    I think you might want to consider having two sets of rims for the back. One set for racing and the other for street. I like having 17s all the way around on mine, but I am after having the improved handing. 15s should not be that hard to find, just hunt through a catalog by Weld or Centerline. The tires for 15s will be cheaper as well.
