Wheels 15x8 vs 15x10

I have the relocation brackets installed and im ready for 15x10's but I keep seeing good deals on used Racestar 15x8's and want to know if its really a night and day difference between the 2 sizes. Has any of you had the 15x8"s and gone with the 10's later or maybe vice versa?

You can get away with the 15x8 and a 275 drag radial since your auto.

I dont want to . I know 15x10s are going to hook better but ive passed up like 4 deals on 15x8s with tires, so I just want to know if waiting for a deal on 15x10s is really that much better and worth it. In the winter people seem to part ways with there track set so im just waiting for that deal. seeing so many 15x8s makes me think maybe they are for sale because they went to 15x10s haha.

Well a 15x10 allows you more wheel choices. And it will also tuck better due to the off sets.

Just went with 15X10 sve drags myself. After seeing the quality on dark stars no way would I run that junk. Poor finish no QC orange peel, washers didn't even sit flush in the wheel. Junk. Anyways I also went with the 295/55/15 ET Street Radials. My setup is a Circle D 5c converter (4000-4200 stall) and 373 gears but that's changing to 331's. I intend to not have to worry about traction hopefully....

Yeah maybe I'm just going to wait for some 10's. I don't want to worry about traction in the future either. I'm sure 8's will be fine right now but as I add more power that can change. I'll look in to the sve wheels you mentioned.

I just noticed the SVE wheels use oem lug nuts. That seems like another plus.

It's not the width of the wheel but rather the tire that's important. You're focusing on the wrong thing.

Also the quality of the Weld wheels are much better than any of the competitors. Something to consider.

Price is much higher too. I got the set of sve I mentioned in Chrome with tires, sway bar relocation kit and Ford racing acorn lugs for under 1600. For Weld rts even with a big discount through a local speed shop I was looking at almost 2500.

Looks like the SVE wheels are lighter also. SVE 16.3lbs, Racrstar 16.8lbs both 15x10.

Agreed.
Start with the correct tire and choose the wheel that fits that size tire best.
The new M/T 275 pro's are killer.
I am running them into the very low 10's with 100% traction so I like them a lot.
I have them on 10" wheels but M/T recommends 8's so you can't go wrong either way.
Also, I have drag stars and can attest to the less than ideal washer setup.
At some point I will sell these off and go to the SVE's.

Check it out:
M/T 275 pros w/670 rwhp 4000 pound auto car.
Need more traction than this?



EDIT:
The thumbnail I used is with 325/50/15 Hoosiers but the tire in the videos is M/T 275 Pros.

Hey FABman I noticed that the MT 275 pro's are for track only according to the MT web site. I will be using mine for street use and very little track. Have you had any good experiences with some drag radials? Ive used some MT sportmans pros on my fox body but the super soft side wall sucked for street. I could feel the side wall folding in while turning.

I have used M/T ET streets, Hoosier DR's and now M/T 275 pros all on the street and have had zero problems with any of them. I run them around 25 PSI on the street and they behave just fine. It's the 4" wide skinnies that worry me.
I have a 6 piston 14" big brake kit on the front and those skinnies tend to lock up if asked to do too much.

It rained on the way home from the car show last month and I had to drive in the rain with my race tires on...surprisingly I didn't die.
It didn't even drive bad for DR's and skinnies. I was pleasantly surprised.
