I found some stock v6 rims and may get them to put some drag radials on. I'd love some 15's but want to keep the sleeper look and save the money. What is the width on them 7 or 8in? All I need is a 275 in a 28in tire.

Mustang Wheels - 16"

any ideas or suggestions of tires...?

I'm not sure of the width off hand. but I know someone who had some 28x10x16 hoosier slicks on a set of v6 wheels and he cut 1.5 60's with them with very minor suspension work. with a 28" tire having a 16" wheel vs a 15" wheel wont make much of a difference i wouldn't think.

7 inch wide. and a intercooler in the front is still sleeper? come on its track tires who cares what they look like as long as they got some good rubber on them. spend the few extra dollars on some aluminum 15's

I rather not spend 1300 for a nice set of drag wheels. And the GT bumper hides the intercooler.

(d) 275/55R16

would these work?

your going to kick your self in the face for not going with enough tire and moving slow threw the traps. but if you like the challange of getting down the track on a so so tire setup, its up to you

dude, unless the people in your area are all drooling helmet wearing window licking water heads, when they see a car on "v6" wheels with a lot of bulge then hear a turbo spool, theres no sleeper look you snapper head

regaurdless of the rim style you're gonna have a good size tire on the back and it'll be obvious it's not a street tire. so the sleeper effect goes out the window lol

sleeper looks are over rated. unless all you plan on doing is roll racing you fool many people. hell tires is the only think i ever care about. 500 hp on a set of sumi's is a win in my book. walk behind and see some mt drag radials, then i may be a little cautous

i would go with a 10 inch wide rim, then you can run a 10-12 inch slick later on down the road if you choose to be a man
