Thanks for the heads up. I think I will finish buttoning up the top end of my motor this weekend instead.

I think you can still get the cheap steel chrome nuggets or wagons from smiles for about fifty bucks, but I had steel wheels on my car when I started and went to centerline alum. and picked up about 3/4 of a sec in the 1/8. It still sounds like alot to me but that's what happened to mine. Some people say to doesnt make that big of a difference. They call it "rolling weight" if you wanted to research it. Before you buy some wheels I usually try not to spend money twice(although just putting the slicks on will pick it up alot.

Back in my street racing days I had a great set of steel pontiac wheels that I mounted my 26 x 8.5 slicks on. They were heavy but worked great. Like rob said the lighter the wheel the better but it all depends on what you are going for.

Not a bad idea at all. Should work well. I used to always paint my wheels black that I used with my slicks. That what they knew I was using them  =)

My new slicks are 33 x 16 Hoosiers using 15 x 15 Convo pros. I can't wait till I get them up under my car!
