Slicks on Stock wheels
So I'm looking to put some slicks on my stock 16" rims. I have never bought slicks before and really dont know much about how they differ from street tires other than hooking up better and being made of differnt material.
So I was wondering what brand and what size would fit without having to do any adjusting to the car.
Or is the stock wheel not going to be a good platform to start from. Should I buy some other wheels to mount slicks on?

Are you looking for some Slicks or drag radials?
You can pick up drag radials for your 16" rims. I would go with the mickey thompsons if thats your plan
If you plan on running a straight slick pick up an alum. 15" rim. And if its your first time on slicks becarful and make a few passes to get the feel of the slicks. Its a whole different world.

Im looking for the most traction I can get. So I suppose that means slicks. Nothing with nubs or tread just flat, soft, sticky tire. Yes it will be my first time on slicks, so I figured that I would take a few runs at about 3/4 throttle and not run it to hard until I got a good feel for it. I also want to make a few runs on the street tires just to get a time after the new suspension.

Whats your Hp looking like? Also are you still on the stock 10 bolt? If so i would reccomend sticking with some Drag radials.
