    i went to exospeed and saw the lenso vpd are 13x7.5

    however the MH slicks i want are 13x8x22 and 24.5x8x13....will they fit on the rims? and hold a bead?

    i dont know what would be the best tire for me. i have ran a 14.2 @98.6mph but my 60' is still 2.2-2.4... and that was with the bfg drag t/a tires ...i was going over the water and heat cycling them like an idiot...i didnt know not to do it.

    i plan on spraying a 75shot soon, and maybe a turbo later on..... what do you guys think? thanks

    ohh, and 22s are fine for sub 200 hp. after that, you're going to want 24s... 24.5 may be pushing it though... your gearing is going to change a lot.

    cut your fenders if they don't fit :)
