This is a discussion on Front skinnies within the Wheels and Tires forums, part of the General Help category; I was going through different forums and I saw that someone mentioned they used the 04-06 GTO spares as skinnies ...

    Front skinnies

    I was going through different forums and I saw that someone mentioned they used the 04-06 GTO spares as skinnies to drag race. I would think that the spare wouldn't be able to handle 100+ mph...

    What are you guy's inputs on that?

    I WOULD NEVER TRY THAT Whoever does that is not the brightest crayon in the box. Those tires are not rated for anywhere near those speeds. I could see blow outs happening

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    Would the wheel with a skinny drag tire work? I would think that the tire is the only thing unsafe about this idea.

    The wheel would be heavier than a true skinny wheel. I would also not want to find out if it was just the tire rated for only 50 miles. Plus I bet it would be hard to find a race legal tire to fit.

    The tire is a 145/70R17. Not too worried about the weight of the wheel. It's more for less resistance.

    Whoever uses spare tires (Rated for 50mph for 50 miles) is a fucking idiot. Do it the right way and buy tires meant for that type of thing.
