Race Stars lots of Questions

Ok so i know ive been trying to decide which wheels/tires setup to go wit. Its really been really hard for me to make a decision as to what to go with. I think I found what im looking for. Race stars 15x10 direct drill black chrome (rear) of course. apparently i would have to relocate my rear sway bar. Not sure but wont that affect the car by relocating it? is there other options? What size tire can and should i go with? Will it clear my brakes in the rear? For the front im going 17s. how wide should i go? Should i do the skinnys? Now my main focus is traction but i still wanna be able to cruise the highway. is this possible? At what speeds will it be safe? lol i know i have alot of question to be answered but now that im sure i want these i would like to knoiw what im in for. thanks in advance guys.

How can anyone answer your questions when we don't even know what year your car is?

Actually, he has a 15 GT. See how difficult it can be when one doesn't explicitly state the year of the vehicle and any other particulars that might affect the size of the rim you can use?

Hahahahha yea according to him he has indigo 15 and an 11. The point is I forgot to add that so instead of someone trying to troll on me look it up and quite simply let me know that I forgot. So let's not make this a thread of full of garbage. If U guys have some input greatly appreciated if not go somewhere else cause I don't have the patience and time. I'm a nice guy but if someone is intentionally trying to poke at me i take that very personal and its never pretty.

I probably have more experience with your questions than anyone else here. But with an attitude like yours I assure you I won't be helping you.

And FYI, you can use the search button since I've posted the answers to your exact questions many many times before.

Whatever man not gonna lose sleep over u not helping. If ur here to help ppl get right to it. Ask question instead of pointing out errors or mistakes. Attitude?!! U don't know me!!! I have every right to get defensive. Too many ppl around here that could use an a$$ whipping. And if U ever read my posts or comments I'm really friendly courteous and respectful. I like to joke around somethings but I let it be known I'm joking. One thing I don't stand is ppl try to belittle me or tying to troll on me especially if they don't know me. Maybe I took it the wrong way and if I did I apologize but if u intentionally trying to poke at me il call u out.

With the 225 fronts it handles just fine and can stop if I need to. Skinny fronts can be a challenge to stop sometimes

Yea my main concern is how it handles and brakes too. I'm curios if it will for over my 4 piston brakes. Also why don't u use the 10" for street?

Race Stars lots of Questions

I bought 8 a long time ago and just got 10s this year. If doing over I would do 10s for street and track. 8s stick out more. 275 pro's are a wider tire and need a 10

Appreciate ur answer this is helping a lot but I have a couple more lol. How much horse u have and how r u hooking? Why not go with a wider tire with the 10? I swear ur the ideal guy I was looking for cause u also have both mt and nittos. Which ones are better?
