Kosei k1. They aren't very wide at 8.5" but are super light 16.xx lbs per wheel

I'm looking at getting a set of these to run on the drag strip here and there for the rears.

Any tires you would recommend? I've been looking at the Nitto NT555r's in 245-45-17.

Get yourself some Apex Arc-8. They come in 9, 9.5, 10, etc so you can get the exact look and setup you want. The 9" apex arc8 is lighter than the 8.5" Kosei k1 and I haven't heard of Apex wheels cracking but I've read quite a few horror stories from k1's.

For my setup. I'm doing 17x9" apex arc-8 (I wanted 9.5" but found some used 9" for a great price) and I'm doing 275/40/17 Mickey Thompson ET Street S/S tires

I was looking at these, though not purely for a drag setup, just as a replacement to my 401's. I would like the 19x10.5" in the back to support a wider tire, but I'm guessing it would rub with like a 295/30/19 on there. They're ET22, so not sure how much room we have to play with back there. Even with the wider rim, they're still 7lbs a piece lighter than stock, gets even better once the run-flats go away.

So I know that if I have a low tire pressure, the car won't let me go in sport or sport plus. Will the car act weird with drag setup on it if I don't even have tpms sensors in them?

My 437 reps dont have any tpms in them. Tire light stays on and i can still go into sport+ and turn dsc off.
