The razors will not fit in 18inch. I called and talked to a salesperson a few weeks ago. He suggest to email them from their main page and express my concerns about not wanting to put 20's on and that if they got enough of a response that might sway them to making a Razor or something close that would fit and not cost $ 2000.00 plus like a couple of rims that do fit our car cost. So goto to the website and let them know what you want maybe they will listen.

Outrageous...

I think we all need to band together and get some buying power for a set of decent wheels. Obviously traction is a huge issue with this car - even in stock condition. I'd be willing to pay dearly for a nice set of wheels and tires the alleviate the poor traction issue. I unfortunately have zero connections with those who can make good wheels.

What size tires do you have on your 20" razors? And also, any traction issues?

When it comes to traction and 20's Tricky, 20's are just for pimpin/cruzn:cool:

Sidewalls to thin & stiff for traction.

The super snake comes in 20". If traction is worse than 18", surpise that that is the standard wheel since SS has uprated power of 600 or 725hp, and 3.73 gearing.

Read the article in the recent Road and Track magazine on the Super Snake, lack of traction is mentioned in the article.

What wheels you planning to put 325's on? Sounds like a good size. I haven't been seriously looking just yet (saving $$ to put in a decent stereo) - but was thing about 315 Nitto 555 or BFG in a 315, didn't think there were any decent 325 tires

YEP. You can go to the May Fly Parade. Then after a good wash he will take the two of you over to Romeo, just so she can see what helps you do those BIG smokey burnouts. Then back to the home 20 for a great time of food and fellowship.

HEY 07, I have just talked myself into a anniversary trip ! Probably have to come by myself. ha ha.
