I am trying to figure out a good wheel tire setup for the track for my truck and I have realized that i have no clue where to begin. I originally was going to run my stock 18'' wheels, but i cant find any drag radials to suit the needs. So now i guess i am going to have to buy a new set of wheels too. Maybe something like Centerline's or American racing. I want a light aluminum racing wheel that will fit our bolt pattern and offset. But i dont know what i need when it comes to all of that. Also bear in mind i have an aftermarket set of huge brakes up front as well. But i run spacers up there to compenssate. Can anyone help me????

I rolled into Discount tire and actually met someone who knew what he was doing. I told him what I wanted and the fact I needed the tire flush to the side of the truck! I hate it when they stick out (can look OK but what a pain to keep the truck clean). I got exactly what I asked for. http://www.titantalk.com/forums/tit...ick-looking-got-my-xd-monsters-take-look.html

I think the key for you is to hit a few tire shops and find a competent person! Should make the process simple and painless.

Your's look good, but that's not really what I am after. I want a nice looking aluminum racing wheel, but the offset and wheel size is what I can't figure out for the dragstrip. Thanks for the suggestions though. It's hard to find a competent tire person at local tire shops these days. :rolleyes:

So that price was for two wheels and tires? I sure hope not! I want a complete set to drive to the track and back home so i dont have to do all that work while at the track. Plus it would be a significant weight reduction over the 22's all around. I need all the help i can get to get to the 13 sec. club!!!!!

Here's a few places to look.

Look at what other "race" trucks are using. www.svtperformance.com has a lot of info for ford Lightnings and I am sure they have tire and wheel suggestions. A lot of them run nitto 555's and 555R Drags i believe because they are reletively soft and aren't too expensive either.

I think they like the 295.45.18 size for 555's and 305.45.18 555R Drags for the rear. www.discountiredirect.com has the best prices on nitto tires I've found. As for some light weight wheels browse around. The 305.45.18's should fit on our trucks they will probably look a little short though; like the other pic in this thread.
