    So I'm lucky enough to be getting a HC and I still have a set of 18" DR's from the Magnum that I haven't used in years so if they fit the HC do you see a problem with using 18" over 20" DR's. I have been out of the drag racing scene so long I can't remember if it will throw any codes or whatnot. Either way thanks for the advice!

    Not sure I have to pull them out and have a look. I'm just wondering if you can leave the 20"s in the front and put 18"s in the back. Then I don't need to go buy a new set of DR's.

    Yes you can if you have no clearance issues but I wouldn't go smaller diameter tires than 28.7 which is stock

    Probably want to make sure the tires are in good shape, and not dry rotted, or cracking, hate to have a blow out

    So I'm still waiting for someone to confirm that an 18" wheel will clear the brembos in back? Will a 17" wheel?
