    Default et drags what rim?

    with my new build almost being complete i need a set of good tires. i would like to get a set of et streets. but i am wondering what size rim i should go with because i dont think you could put them on a stock wheel? i may be wrong. a few people said go 15s but where would i find a 15 that would fit our cars? thanks!

    You can run 245s on a tq star just fine. If I was spending the money tho I could get some hoosier QTPs on drag lite 16" rims.

    Yeah Get the lightest rim you can. Knocking rim/tire weight greatly reduces your et.

    i've seen it, but you may run into cupping and not get the full benefit of the tire compound and the width of it.

    I'd run 245's...perfect for that rim. Mine were NT555R's sized 245/50/16 on a silver ABS rim.

    Ya I want either some qtps or et streets I don't think they make a 245/50/16 that's the problem. I have nittos now but am in need of some new tires and I Wana try something a little better. Im gunna mount them on some steelies. Any suggestions cause I would like to stay with a 245 also
