I was wondering about them. Also, would you need all four to be the drag radials or could you just buy two for the front and leave the dunlops on back?

2 for the front will be fine. Why would you need traction in the rear? When i get 19s on this bastard I will be putting at least 2 drags on 2 of them.

Speaking of 19s, I was thinking going that direction because even lowered the wheel well seems huge and empty. What do ya'll think?

Look into some M&H cheater slicks or their DOT tires.

We did run the 225/50/16 BFG G-Force from 2003- late 2004. They were good as we got a best of 1.88 60ft on them.

Now we have 235/60/15 M&H tires and we did about 6 passes on them but these are stickier than the BFG's.

The only reason I wouldn't get 19's is because of how much they will probably weigh.

That's what I figured. Although I'm 32 years old, I'm still relatively new to the racing scene so expect a silly question or two from me from time to time. ;)

Is the bolt pattern the same, I thought the RL's were different?

Nope the L series has the same bolt pattern, im gonna grab some of those soon and use em for the track. An easy option for all of us! Look it up on tire rack, it is 5x110. :D

if you get big chrome 19s with all kinds of crap in them yes they will be heavy. If you get a basic lookin spoked 19 you get a little more weight but worth the looks. The wheel wells are nice and full with the drop.

Yeah, but aren't you worried about the additional rotational mass those extra two inches are going to create? Even if you get the basic 19" rim, it will still weigh a far amount, not to mention putting the tire weight further away from the center.

But if looks are all that you're going for then I guess 19's are more your style.
My last comment wasn't meant to be sarcastic :) .

whatever floats your boat, 19's you like 19's you get. I want 17x8 or 16x8, I would like to get Volk racing wheels but they will probably never make a 5x110 wheel. :( it makes me sad
