landspeed tires or??
« on: December 17, 2018, 10:14:21 AM »
I'm changing front tires and wheels from the stock 20" diameter 11" wide fronts to 18" X 6". BUT!!!!!  Now that I have the 18" Weld wheels, I'm not finding any tires. Who'd a thunk I'd have this problem.  Any reasonable solutions out there?

Sorry everyone, this should have been considered as an equipment question.

I run Weld dragster front wheels (front and back) and use Hoosier dragster fronts on all four corners. I want to qualify my statement with the fact that I'm a G engine and therefore I'm not exactly ripping rubber off the tires when I leave the line.
