    Best 60' from drag radials

    To get a good 60' from drag radials with a M6 should I get 15" or 16" instead of my stock 17" ? I heard the bigger sidewalls of a 15" would spin less. Anyone have experience using different sizes?

    do you have you factory 7 5/8" carrier and axles?...if so DO NOT stick slicks under your car for any reason at all no matter if M/T tells you its ok...you will blow up your rear end in a heart beat...may take 2 or 3 launches but something will blow
