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.
