Like the title says I've been looking for a drag setup based around a 16 inch wheel. Ive searched and the only things i come up with are either widening stock wheels are the CCW wheels that are kinda pricey. All the threads i looked at where a couple years old and I was wondering if there was anything new out there that you guys are using.

I like the billet specialties F bodies, but is there anything else that i could use without grinding the caliper?

So you want narrow 16's in front, and 16 "wide ones in the back?

I've got 16x10 rear and 17x5 front bogarts and like it a lot. same setup as a lot of the vette guys run with that ccw drag pack

a 16'' wheel out back limits your tire options greatly

You can run 15" Bogarts front and rear, and they do not require grinding. If you buy them used you can avoid spending $1700 for a complete set.

At one time I ran 16's in back, but there was not weight savings.

In the following pic, circa 2000, I ran 16x8's in back and 15x3.5's in front, fronts had a spacer:

I would like too, but it seems like there arent many options. Bogarts are to expensive for me so I think I'll stick to the Billet Specialties.

I think i can get those new for around 1200 new

If you look you can find the Billet Specialties wheels a bit cheaper than that.

thats great news i hate the wheels on the car now, some used to be chrome ZR1's the previuos owner rattle canned black.

If you cant post where the good prices are please send a PM i would be real grateful.

Is that a real mock up or was that just a setup to take a pic. that car looks like it was made to run pro mod if that was for real.
