Just wanted to share my drag wheels before I swap back to my daily driver set

17 all around

I'm considering selling the fronts to go 18" if anyone is interested

Im on eibach ss sedan lowering springs.

Fronts- 17x8 with 245/45/17 tires



Rear are 17x10 with 305/45/17 tires. fenders are rolled, the car will need to go about 3/8 - 1/2" in the rear. It doesn't rub now but its so close I think it would rub on the fender with passengers in the back and the inside lip is still closer to the control arm then I like.

I also had to grind a small notch in the control arm cause the inside lip of the wheel touched ( stock ppv or stock ss spring shouldn't have this issue )

I may also have to go a size larger up front if I drive on these on the street cause it trips the ABS light due to the front/rear difference. But for now this will be a drag pack

Looks great! Would you mind sharing the tire sizes? Was any trimming or rolling necessary in the rear?

details added, I initially made the thread off my phone so kept it simple.
