Draglite question?

Can I run a 15x7 or wider in the front? I know the negatives of running 15x4 or smaller during street use. Always liked the look but if I'm goin to be on the street with this car I wanna keep as much traction as I can.

Re: Draglite question?

Here is what im running on my car, the tire size is 205/55/R15 on Draglite wheels. I will get a better pic this afternoon. They drive fine for street use, I even hit the twisties from time to time with them and never had a problem.

Yes, you can.
Just make sure the back spacing is correct and they clear the brake calipers.
