    Drag Wheels???

    Looking for drag wheels for track. Summit sells pro star look alikes.

    I do not want to grind the calipers.

    They have 3 different backspacings for a 15x10x4.75

    4.5 backspacing

    5.5 backspacing

    6.5 backspacing
    http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

    And what size for skinnies for the front?
    The maching ones are 15x4x4.75 with 1.75 backspacing...will they need spacers?

    Don't want to grind???

    Save up for Bogarts.
    Otherwise...you are shit outta luck.



    Fronts are 15x3.5 with 1.75" backspacing. 5/8" spacer required to clear the stock brakes.

    Sadly...from what I understand, those Summit wheels aren't nearly as solid as the Weld ProStars.

    I am not looking to be a daily driver on these wheels, but just the ocassional track day...

    Mr. Luos- What Backspacing do you have, and how much did you have to take off your calipers?

    Or What about the Greg Weld wheels? 15x10x4.75 w.4.5 backspacing? Looks to be a more open wheel?

    Rears are 15x10 with a 7.5" backspace.
    I had to grind for at least an hour a side.

    I just realized that the slicks i run are on 15x7 rims and they fit with no caliper grinding.
