How much did going to 17 inch wheels affect your 1/4 mile?
Not sure. I had my 17'' Prodrives and 215/45/17 nittos the first time I went to the track. I ran 13.3 @ 100 mph with Turboxs stage 2 setup and these tires and wheels. Thats faster than most run with the Stage 2 setup and stock wheels. I get consistant 1.80 or better 60' times.
Thats why I hate it when people blame their wheels for slow times. Yes they may slow you down a tenth or two but you can still run good numbers with aftermarket heavier wheels. Mine weight 22lbs each. Thats pretty heavy.
I ran 8.18 in the 1/8 mile in 90 degree heat (Stage 4 setup) , with these 17'' wheels.
