I never was a fan of the big rim on the front and small on the back.

The RaceStar wheels are cast and very heavy. Which sucks. The machining is also very poor in the lug nut area. If/when you buy them do yourself a HUGE favor and do not use their lug nuts and washers. But the McGard lug nuts and stainless washers. And get the small diameter washers. The "correct" ones RaceStar says to use catches a lip of the bore where the lug nut goes. It cups the washers and doesn't secure the wheel properly. The smaller O.D. washers work fine.

They are also not hub centric. So you have to use a hub centric ring. Even with the rings my car had bad shaking at highway speeds.

I agree and say save your pennies for a set of RT-S, Alumistars or the like. MUCH better quality and they are lighter.

Black center RT-S. I think his would look great with the all polished seeing his is Deep Impact Blue.


28" tires front and back. I hate the 26/28" look. Plus it messes up the suspension geometry.

Brembo equipped cars are very limited on drag wheel choices still.

You can run spacers and the Alumistars up front. They look good. But not very friendly on the street at all. Drew has them on his car now. Let me see if I can find pics of that set up.

The black center looks hot, but I am digging the polished way more on darker cars! This is pure sex IMO.

I was more worried about polishing more of the wheel. S0 I went with the black centers. haha

I think the polished would be the way to go on his Deep Impact Blue car.

These are 18x9 & 18 x 10 but you can see the color car and all polished RT-S. Sadly it is poor light. Otherwise I think the paint and wheels would "pop" more.

If I want boost, Im going to need to save some cash and get the cheap slicks/skinnys. BTW the ones I posted are not even racestars. They are the SVE drag wheels from LMR.

RT-S FTW. That will be my set up. 15 rear, 17 front. I've wanted those wheels since I have my 5th gen.
