15" pro stars, or 17" w/ DR's...?

Can i fit Weld 15" wheels over my front and rear factory disc brakes on an 01 GT?

Can't find and concrete information...

Might just buy two crappy 17" wheels and get drag radials though too...

I think you can usually, the issue may be the E brake cable or what not if it hangs low, I know on my car I have a tie rod out back that wont clear and has to be ground to clear. You wont have this issue with a live axle.

most companies can tell you if they will clear your stock brakes. Weight matters a bunch every 1lb of rotating mass is 10lbs of dead weight or there about. Keep that in mind if you want true performance vs looks and some performance.

A taller sidewall tire (15 vs 17) will give your car more bounce and with a DR will make it less stable (wobble) on the road as well.

It would be for Drag Racing only.

Only reason I'd run DR's is so i could drive it to the track, so i didn't have to trailer it.
