Hi am looking for 2 wheels suitable for the rear of my Datsun 260z for drag strip use
Looking for something along the lines of 9x15 or poss 10x15? (std 114.3x4)
I had a quick look on your site and found RKR style in 9x15''s
Do you do others inc any in 10's ?

btw, am already using your RBX 9.5x17 et-19 on the rear, but you only list them in 17's (unless also available in smaller sizes?)

Hi there

9" is the widest we go in 15s.

We dont have anything designed for use with drag tyres, but assuming you're using something road legal we have a number of 15x9 4x114 options.

Aleica
BM8
Grid-V
Kensei
Kyusha
RKR

All of the above come in 15x9 if they might be of interest?

Ok cheers.
I don't want to get too serious into this drag lark as this is just for fun, but maybe I need to rethink my options for 17" tyres instead ?
Am using Toyo R888's 245.40.17 atm
Can I get a "better" tyre for strip use?
Or would I be better using a 15" rim on the rear with a race slick (meant for circuit use)
btw the RKR price listed, how much are they as pairs?

Prices on our site are for sets of 4, so if you need 2, you can just half them - no premium charged :)

You wont do much better than R888s for drag use on road legal tyres I wouldn't think, to improve things people often get the softer compounds, and run crazy low tyre pressures I believe, and do lots of burnouts because either they're fun, or to warm the tyres up, never really sure...
