    If your talking about the stock rims from your DelSol then yes they will fit. The rim is 5 in width but they'll work because I just mounted 23/9/13 slicks on the same exact size rim you just have to make sure that the shop you have mounting them knows how to do it. ;)

    Do you think 23x7's will be good for my car on the drag strip? i only race once a week at the strip.

    and since you mounted 23x9's, do you think i could put some 93x9.5's on these rims. the guy i am buying them from has the 23x7's and 23x9.5's for the same price.

    I would go with the 7's the only reason I have the 9's is that I got them for free from one of my teammates. I wanted to go with the 22/8/13 M&H but the Goodyears I have brought me down a little more than half a second on the strip. Where do you race?
