I'm actually using a set of Forgestar F14's 18x12 rear with M&H 345/35/18. For the front I'm taking the 18x10 and having them shortened to 18x6... Another forum member has done it...
If you got the money then go with the 15 inch RTS's for your rear with the LG drag spindle and stock C6 rear brakes... Looks the best...

For the top in traction, the 15" is going to give you the largest range of tires and the best as far as an all out drag slick on it.

Our Billet drag spindles and 15" Weld combo is running on some of, including the quickest IRS Corvette on the planet right now. Proven to run into the 6's!


I think everyone knows this one

yea what scares me about the 15 inch spindles is i would have to run a 28'' tire and they dont make gears for Z06 so i have been running 25.6-26'' tires for better stock gearing

Why would you have to run a 28" tall tire? There are 26" tires as well.....

I like the setup you had. I just ordered the same thing except wider in the front as I want to drive it every day... not a real "drag setup". I considered going 15" in the back but decided the 17s would be better for normal driving and should hook well with 325 racemasters.
Welds are the best looking IMO
