I'm awaiting some spacers. The ones that came with them were pretty thick and I need a thin one to clear the brakes. They are a little taller..but seem to clear fine. Will get the center caps soon.

I'll need to double check that. The rims are 15 or 16'*. Since they were used on a GP..I'm thinking 16".

Tires..uhmmm I'll double check.

I was looking through centerline'* website. I didn't see those wheels in particular, but they could be an old model, plus its hard to see from that angle. Looked like all of their 15" drag wheels were in the 9-13lb range, those are some light rims! Still would make for a light tire to come in at 26lbs total, but I have no clue what slicks are like, I'm sure there is a lot less to them than a street radial! I might be back up that way for a day or two, might have to stop by and "kick the tires"

Boy you went a looooooooooooooong way from the guy who insisted on black vacuum wires and very standard engine parts. Where'd our conservative Boosty go?
