I just picked up a set of front runners and damn there thin!! :eek2: My car is a street/track car so i drive it on the streets some to local cruis nights and what not. Who else drives theres on the streets? Have any issues with them or not.
I do on Bogarts, sportman tires...
No issues yet, just have to be more carefull about potholes and cornering..

We drive ours everywhere on 15x3.5 Draglites and never had any issues. We don't take corners like a Nascar driver either, but normal driving has created no issues for us.

They will break if you try to slot car race with em.
My cousin used to work for Weld in customer service, he would get about one call a month where some idiot took a turn at speed and the wheel folded.
There is a reason that "For drag racing use only" is stamped into the front runners.
NO Warranty if you break em on the street. Your out the wheel and the copious damage to your car.
Keep in mind your on skinnies all the time and don't do anything stupid and you will be fine.

I run a thiner tire and rim combo. I went to a bogart road race wheel that was 6" and put a nitto 205 road race tire to help make up for the lack of width. It drives fine, it obviously isn't as grippy as a larger tire but it can sure as heck handle alot more than a 3" tire.
Here is an angle that lets you see what the tire looks liked turned. I took that pic before the car was lowered so it sits kinda high, but at least you get a better view.
I have, on many cars. I almost always use the MT sportsman tires on my skinnies. Just don't fly around corners and watch out for potholes and other obsticles. Just remember that the car will not stop as well on skinnies as it will on regular street tires.

I run em on days where I plan to hit the track after work.
I prefer my street tires for daily driving though.

I daily drive mine in Northern WA year round where we get a snow or two a winter and some pretty good rain. As mentioned just don't drive like you're on sportlines with 300 series rubber and you'll be fine. My car is pretty light though so that might help out with the braking situation.
