i seem to find a lot of conflicting information
but am loooking for a tire or wheel/tire combo for the rear of my impala for the track

I have 2010 vette rims daily but also have a set of factory impala 17" wheels sitting around

Should i run the factory ss wheel and what size tire should i run
or
Should i buy some 15" crager soft 8's and get some 15" drag tires

what are the offset needed for the cragars and what size tire for best traction in both cases

what if any are pros and cons of each


thanks in advance

I think the "soft 8s" look like crap. I have the "wheel vintiques" truck rally wheels that are 5x5 for our cars with a 275/50 (26")drag radial and they had 6" matching for the fronts too.
But I have a silver car and they matched pretty good.

I use a V line 15x8 black alum wheel wrapped with 27 10.50 MT ET streets. The V line looks just like the Soft 8 but is about 1/2 the weight.

I have a set of M&H that are 28x10.5x15 and was planning 0n 15x8's OR 10's. Any advise on the rim and backspacing.
