    Slicks??

    I am going to be ordering some slicks with a buncha friends and am going with a 15 inch. I have a eibach pro kit installed and was not planning on changing the springs when i swap the drags on. what is the size tire i should be getting?? 26x10.5, 28x10.5? or any other suggestions...

    i was also wondering the width of the wheels 8 or 10's. i am waiting on the new greg welds when they come out later this year.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE !!!

    I run the 28" x 10.5, and had to tweak the adjustable LCA's to center the tires. The drag radials are great, but the 28" slicks grow on the burn-outs causing bumper lip rubbing...
    The 26" will be no hassle at all !!!

    what gear ratio and horse power do you have? what trap rpm are you looking to be at? It all depends on your set up. look up on a tire calculator. More than likely a 26" will do just fine unless you have some stupid amount of HP and a 4.56 gear then you will need a 28" tall tire.

    Myself, I have 4.30 gears with a 6 speed. 405 HP at the wheels and trap at about 109 to 110 mph at around 6400 rpm (In Denver 5300 ft above sea level). so I am about perfect, with a 26.5" tall tire.

    By the way MT ET Streets are awesome and I highly recomend them!!!
