I would not recommend putting wheels in your cabin or trunk. That could be dangerous and unstable to have things shifting around when you go down the track. Most tracks won't even allow it if they do any kind of tech. inspection.

Yea probably right as both wouldn’t go in the trunk with seat up. I’ll govecit a try. I know my ats if pressure was just low it would lock out the ability to turn traction control off so was pointless to bag Tires down to 20 psi as couldn’t do a burn out tovget hot. I never use anything either just turn stability and traction off totally as got my best 60 foot that way. The car just doesn’t have good weight transfer with stiff suspension and why that drag setting will be great if can get that with out the whole drag pack. I would like to just get the mag ride update with a choice of drag race till then not sure if ever will be able to just nail it off the line and not have some wheel spin no matter the tire on it. Hopefully will see me on top of the stock zl1 times and the mod times this weekend as my track is having a big street car event with 100 dollar buy in and total payout to winner so a lot of cars should show up and track be prepped very well.

I see some guys with beadlocks and some without. At what point are they necessary?

I Had 18" forged wheels on my Hellcat with 305/45/18 Street R's and tires were slipping on the rim about 1" per launch. My friend with his Hellcat on Dec2nd ran a 9.74 and a 9.75 putting around 800 rwhp had to stop running that day as his tire moved half way around the rim with same wheel tire I had on my HC. Told myself I was buying beadlock next car that's why I got them. He is now going 15" conversion with beadlocks.

I was cutting 1.38 60s in a 94 z28 wheels up and used normal rims never had any issues l also was smart enough to sand the shine off the bead area on the weld wheels prior to having Tires put on the rim. Just old tricks to keep them from moving. Been envolved with 2000whp pro 5.0 series cars in the early 2000s and didn’t even use them on 7 second 200 mph passes on those cars so a lot of that is in wheel and tire prep type of rim. We did mark that car and had it move but was not every run and with already a huge amount of money in a car like that of bead locks were even allowed in class as can’t remember we didn’t see the need to spend the money. That car also sat on top of its class for years. The hellcat could have more issues as it’s so damn heavy. But then watched some 5000 lbs diesel truck running 9s in a pro class not using them. Personally with prep I think it’s not needed and extra weight and hastle on street cars. As many classes don’t allow them people found ways around it for yesrscon cars a lot faster then these.

The reason I went with 10" wide instead of 11" is because I wanted to run the M/T 305/45/17 ET Street R and the optimum rim size for that size tire is a 10". I will post back once I test fit the rim if someone else does not confirm the specs before I have a chance too.
Finally was able to get the car home from the tuner. Mounted the rims. They fit!!! Tight but they clear.

Nice! Do the factory lug nuts work or did you purchase aftermarket ones?

I used aftermarket lug nuts that I have for my other rims. They are Gorilla Small diameter

Not wanting to mess with a smaller brake to do it just swap stock 20 for the other. Thanks.
I've done 17x10 and can easily fit a 17x11" as well with the MT305 or a shorter 315 for those guys that like the shorter ones closer to stock power. The Z06s really perform well closer to stock power levels with the 26.3" but gearing is a little different too obv:

I know you're not after the brake swap but for those guys that are, our 15" kit looks killer too, OEM color matched calipers, slotted rotors, etc
