Werd.


So what exactly do you have that would involve the need for slicks?

Well, the tire is 1" wider than the wheel on each side w/ 7" of sidewall to pull in.
AFAIK lots of guys run 315/70R17's on 17" by 10" wheels which is 1" wider per side w/ 8.7" of sidewall so I don't see why it would cause a problem. The only issue I can see is the tires rubbing the outer fender when you lauch. I think that you could get a wider wheel such as the cheapo generic ones that most tire shops sell for cheap in an 8" or 9" width and then not have to worry about switching tires on your wheels.

Just grab a bottle of VHT for like $10 or whatever it is, it'd be a better temporary solution, if you care about your paint, just make sure to wash it off, or put a little baby oil on the rear fenders before you put it down and spin em in it.
