    Oh and about the calipers I would grind them a little to make myself feel good.

    Thanks! That is the plan -- just a little added insurance.

    I don't know man.
    I would be pretty pissed if I dropped the money for one of the only wheels that will clear the calipers without grinding....and ended up having to grind.

    They will clear without issue for you....without grinding.

    I have D10s on mine ,I had to grind the fronts a little about 5 or 10 minutes each side. Nothing drastic by any means. And I saved about 85lbs over stock tires and rims

    Are your fronts 4"? Our rims don't even come close to the front brakes.

    where exactly do you measure? outside lip to lip is 5 inches inside where the tire would be on the inside is 4 inches and the spacer that is welded on the inside is 3/4 inches

    I'll have to measure them tonight -- it'll be a close approximation though as the tires are mounted.

    Unfortunately, I have way too many projects. As soon as the 'Burb exits the lift bay this week I'll get them bolted up.

    Well... a month or so later we are back at it. Bolting the wheels onto the car tonight to check the clearance on my bump stops. Had to throw the wheels on the scale first for a comparison:

    Stock 17" wheel and Falken Ziex tire -- 51.5 lbs.:




    Bogart 15" x 4" wheel and Hoosier front runner -- 22.5 lbs.:




    Bogart 15" x 10" wheel and Hoosier QTP -- 36.0 lbs.:




    That is 58 lbs. off the front and 31 lbs. off the rear for a total reduction of 89 lbs. If all goes as planned, we'll be running the car this weekend at Beaver Springs at a test and tune event.

    Very nice. I believe you can buy those washers at any auto parts store for cheap.

    After much debate, I decided to clearance the fins on the caliper and bumpstop mounting flanges just a bit with a grinder. I'll probably just remove the aluminum spacers on the bumpstops at the track so I won't have to grind them down too.








    After grinding, I mounted the wheels to the car and set it down to double check my clearances. The center caps are not installed on the rears in the pic and the lift is still holding some of the weight -- that's why the wheel well gaps look a bit odd.

    Ran the new combo at the track yesterday. Down about 4/10's to a best of 13.05. Just could not break into the 12's. My sixty foot was in the 1.9's. Need me some stall!

    Yeah. My guess is you are foot braking it? Prolly can't get up to high without the car starting to roll.

    I may try again this weekend and run it up a bit higher in the revs. I was still rolling into the throttle like last year.
