Time slip's are a hush hush for me sorry. . . . . . I can tell you I have "stock sus." F-bodys on a single stage that do 1.58-1.64 60's ALL Day on a 275.
Yes it would be well worth the swap if your making ANY type of real power.
Do you still have stock rear springs? If so get a pair of V-6 rear springs from the junk yard. Also take a cut off wheel on a dia grinder and cut off ANY access threads you have on your front sway bar end links. When you get to the track it will take you 5 min. to undo the bolts and nuts. It will gain you at least a couple of inches in front end travel which will equal MORE WEIGHT TRANSFER.
Do you street race alot? You don't have to answer that ? on here! Anyways if so the 18's are a big ADVANTAGE in my eye's because you can get ALOT more kids to race you with there shit box import's thinking you can't hook.Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

I got 17s. I went with em because tires were way cheaper...most people can't tell the difference in 17s and 18s anyways.
I've raced on the streets...not afraid to say it. Still on stock suspesion besides SFCs. My next mods for suspension would probably be LCA relocation brackets and a TQ arm though.
Just curious would I could get for a 60' the way i sit though..pm me if ya like. I just wanted to know if the 325s would fit in the wheelwell. Main reason being traction and 60' fts but, damn it'd look BADASS too. Also, what kinda mileage can I get out of these?

O.E. Concepts has a 18x10.5" +58mm c6 z06 wheel. I could get different rims, but I just got them and i don't really wanna switch rims yet. So i could just upgrade to these 18s.
Would the +58mm work? Life of these DRs?
one more ?
what's the difference between these and MT ET STREETS II?

As I said I would run the 275 but he would be ok due to the fact it has a large sidewall which will flex alot more WITHOUT cupping the tread.
