    Your 60' nees a LOT of work. I bet with some practice and decent tires you could get that down a lot lower. Congrats on the run!

    uhh, no its not. 2.5 60' sucks, i don't care if you ran a 9 or a 19.

    you've easily got a low 14 sec car. you jsut need to learn how to drive it.

    stop telling him to get autoX and street tires. he needs a drag tire.

    Just get some junk yard steel 14's and slap the BFG's on there. $250 for a set of drag wheels/tires...not too bad.

    30 offset might rub on the brakes.... really depends on the inside of the wheel. but damn, those things have got to suck.

    score some oem honda wheels or something or steelies if you have to, and throw the drag radials on it.

    naw.. you can fit a 205 on a 6" rim. you aren't trying to TURN on these things, so who cares if the sidewall is a little floppy.
