What size rims to use at the Strip?


GEAR M UP

Recommended Posts

Doesn't that give you a false sense of accomplishment? :wtf: I want my SS going down the track to feel just like when I am on the road. :P That way, I know what I can and cannot do with another vehicle on the road.

 

Is this misguided thinking on my part? :jester:

That's my feeling on the subject also. I'm pretty well decided someday I'll get some 20" Centerlines. They don't look too bad, save about 16lbs per wheel, and I won't have to buy new tires. Plus they're only like $200 a piece.

That's what I did and I can feel a little better acceleration and breaking with the lighter wheels, plus they look :cool:.

I put some 20" centerlines on recently. THe shop had a cheap bathroom scale to weigh the wheels. Probably not highly accurate, but the SS wheel was 38 pounds and the centerline was 31.5. Not as big of a weight savings as I'd hoped. That puts the stock tire near 40 pounds.
