    Tire God 2.0 any thoughts?

    If you are using stock wheels then the normal stick on weights should be fine I would think. Why do you think you need special wheel weights? They are not going to sling off.

    You should be fine with normal wheel weights. They get mounted to the inside surface of the wheel (the part that faces the brakes) so centrifical force whill keep them in place.

    My opinion would be if your tire guy asks YOU that question it may be time to find a new tire guy.......

    First burnout at the track on a somewhat hot day mine flew off and shook the cat all over at the top end ...... Not sold on stick weighs at all , adhesive heats up and can come off very easily given the right conditions ......

    OK plum texas crazy one other thing to tell your tire guy--don't forget-- tires off no lube, drag tires on no lube they must go on dry or it is possible that your drag tires will turn on the wheel at the track , check this by marking your tires at the valve stem before raceing.

    Please let me know how the mounting goes as my tires are being shipped right now. Same setup as you will be running.

    I've got those tires and there great. Driven them for 2 seasons now and daily on the streets. I went with a bigger rim and it has been great. Next upgrade aluminum drive shafts.

    Only thing I do extra is duct tape over the stick on weights.

    Nothing wrong with that! Let us know how it goes, I plan to get them soon as well but think I'm going to stick with the factory tire size I could locate a shop that doesn't have an issue mounting a little larger than spec tires. OEM size will probably work for me it's a weekend warrior for cruising and to fulfill my car obsession I don't go to the track just hate when I step on it a little it's so easy to break loose with those all seasons! Good luck!
