This might be better suited for wheel and tire section. However, I would be reluctant to get slicks if you still have a stock rear. Drag radial would be pushing it especially if it is an m6. I just think you should know that. But 15in rims should clear the rear rotors without a problem and 10in wide should work well but i am not too familiar with the third gens. Weld five stars are pretty low weight I believe, as for DR's the best I have seen tested are the Mickey Thompson ET Radials. You can really get some high rpm launches with them, so again i would be reluctant to get those without a reenforced rearend. I have also heard thing about the Nitto 555r as an all around summer time time to take to and from the track.

If you have never ran a slick befor i would be careful, its a whole different world. Personaly i would reccomend you go with some Decent Drag Radials... Can keep your stock rim and just pick up some drag radials...
