    a 13x5 is a hirrible choice for a drag wheel, unless of course your car makes 102 horsepower.

    13x8 is where you should start looking for a drag slick. anything smaller, and you simply won't get the benefits of it.

    Thanks pissedoff...but I would still like to stick to a cheap light wheel for drag racing (only gonna take it to the track 3 times a month) Thats why I thought vx wheels would work...Any oem wheels 13x8?? Any ideas??

    Thanks everyone!!

    just get 14" stealies from a junk yard and buy the 14-60-205....

    the stealies are a little heavier than an alloy wheel but it will cost you 10 bucks and you wont notice the diff....

    my point is, the tire size that you can fit on a vx wheel really isn't worth the hassel.

    first, what kind of power are you putting down? that has EVERYTHING to do with proper slick sizing.
