    Got my prostars!

    And I love them I put VERY limited street miles on the car, so I'm selling the ten-spokes and unning the prostars all the time. I'm looking to buy a set or 15x8s to put some nittos on for street duty. I didn't clean it up or anything, but I wanted to take some quick pics to se how I liked it. Rears are 325/50/15 et streets and a little bigger than I would have bought but they were on the rims when I got them, fronts are 165 metrics on a 15x3.

    The wussy automatic will still spin em from a 25 roll

    And a pic of my car with my g/fs dad's just to post it

    I havn't been out yet joel, but before these I ran some 255 et streets on factory 5 spokes and cut 1.6xs I plan to spray pretty much out of the hole now and cut down the 60ft, I don't know what to expect. It is a 28" tire rather than 26" which sucks when you only have 3.23s, but it doesn't measure out that tall like it advertises. It equated to going to 3.08 gears when I measured it and did the math, that's my only worry right now. When they are gone I'll get the right size tire.

    That doesn't make sense, is it the t/a? There has to be something wrong. I can launch from idle and hit the nitrous withing 5 feet and barely spin them. Are you doing a huge burnout? I found that at least in my case with a big burnout they don't stick very well, but just spinning them for a few seconds and then rolling out they hook like crazy. Lt1 or Ls1, that M6 should cut a 2.1 practically stock and on street tires

    So you have 15X10's on the back in you digitals? How does that big of a tire clear things in the wheel well?

    It looks good, do you have the part numbers to the wheels, want to make sure I get the right ones with the correct back spacing.

    Thx

    digitals?

    It's a 15x10, 7.5" backspacing. 5x4.75 bolt pattern. It clears everythign just fine, the guy I got them frmo had to beat on the fender wells with a hammer, but I didn't. It is typical that you have to beat on them some and remove the bump stop, although I didn't have to do either one. You do have to grind on your brake calipers quite a bit to get the rears to fit, ls1tech has a link with pictures and everything you need to know about that.
