Your V-6 can't overcome the rotational mass of the 20's,especially on your holeshot( i'm betting you loose a full second and a half on your launch). Most 20" rims weigh 30lbs. or more per wheel. Having a V-6 Pony you should keep a set of stock 16 or 17" set just for track thrashing.

ummm.... if you were intending on hitting the track.... its a gimmie not to get 20's.... for the track stick to lightweight 18's....i say 18's cuz if you decide you need some mighty brakes for the track then they will likely fit under the 18's.... do you have your stockers? just through those on next time you hit the track!

20's look good but with no sidewall, they will not perform well at the track!

Definitely look into some stock wheels for track use!!:bigthumbsup

Ouch, that is just dirty...

*why do i have an infraction*?? lol
Yep....always pictured you as somebody out there just stirrin turds........:shigrin So exactly what is an infraction? I know I have typed posts with some "color" but they get asterisked and I thought that was the end of it. Didn't know I could get flagged for bad behavior.......especially with me being an Angel and all......:nogrinner

Well, gotta put somethin in hear to do with the original post.......
20"s are for looks, not for racin.....but you know this by now. Some guys drop down to 15" Bogarts and MTs for real hookup and launches.
