    I just watched a youtube video of Dr. Buick running 9.98 q-mile and he had 17" drag"slicks" and wheels. Does anyone know what wheel and Hoosier drag slick tire size he used on his Challenger Hellcat?

    I had Forza modify my with a Stage 4, made 840hp/800tq and has little low speed traction. I have found since I drafted the post they were RaceStar Dark rims with 28x10-17 Hoosier Slicks. I just want to make the 9's. Thank you for your response, NICE times!!!

    You don't need tubes, or screws either.
