Hey guys just wanted to let you all know my improvements from just a pair of Mickey Thompson ET streets. (26x11.5x15) I went to the track on street tires and this is what my time slip looked like
60'____2.243
1/8___9.477
1/4___14.148
mph___106.54

I got some jegs rims and some et streets (not the radials) and this is what it looks like now
60'___1.684
1/8___8.099
1/4___12.668
MPH___107.43
Felt amazing launching at 5000 rpm and hooking up. Also, I started with my tires at 12psi and it was EXTREMELY floaty and unstable once i hit 80 mph. I couldn't even make a full pass because i thought i was gonna crash. I aired them up to 20psi then gradually got down to 15psi and it was stable enough to make a good pass and get a good 60' time.

Congratz,amazing how good tires and wheels can perform. Which Jegs rims did you get. I think 15 psi is just about perfect for those tires,depending on weather conditions. Pics are a must,this may get moved to the drag racing section . Just saying...

Jegs pn 555-67077. They are meant for foxbodies with the 5 lug conversion. An earlier forum said that these would fit without shaving any brake caliper and withouth spacers. Well i had to shave a tiny bit off my brakes and i used 5/16" spacers and it was all good. For $125 each i was happy. Also they weight about half as much as my street wheels and tires.

They say alot of things. LOL I took a body shop grinder to mine and it took at least 15 minutes on each side grinding away. I have the same ones up front. I got Bogarts out back . I love this set up .

Sure is, I run 15x 4.5 wheels. The tires are 195/65r/15 they are high speed tires. I love the fronts a lot. My rears are 15 x10`s (Bogarts).
