    you have a stock b16 dude...

    slicks really won't do you much good at this point. the money would be better spent elsewhere

    13" x 8" wheels w/ 25" slicks are the norm.

    I'll be investing in some 22x8x15's here soon. M&H is the only brand name you need to worry about knowing.

    OH, and B is right. A stock motor will perform jsut about exactly the same numbers on slicks as without. Just have a higher MPH, but also a higher 60' time without, but the same ET because of the extra friction created by sticky tires on top end.

    With Nitrous, they are worthwhile, On motor, you're just wasting expensive slick rubber.

    160-170 whp is a good slicks/no slicks cutoff point, IMHO.

    get at least 24's dude. you're way beyond the 22" power level. id put 22's at 225 whp tops...

    i got 25's, and they are big... and will probably never be used. lol

    I'll make do on 22's, man. I want it to look like street tires on the 15's when I pull up. ;) I'm not looking for 1.6 60' times, I jsut don't want the tires to blow off in second.
