    I am needing to get new wheels and I would like to find something light weight. I know that I can just get a drag pack with skinnies up front but I don't want to do that. I want to keep a set of wider tires up front. Has anyone run 17x9.5 drag wheels on all 4 corners? I think they will fit physically but I am questioning the integrity up front. I might be over thinking this but would the wider rims hold up to the steering demands up front?

    Im open to suggestions with it though. I would even be ok with the standard pro-stars that everyone uses.

    Yeah, I guess you got a point there. I'm just not ready to spend that kind of money on wheels.

    Your best bet would be to contact the wheel manufacturer. Some don't even recommend driving with their drag wheels on the street.
