which could fit these wheels below (also from mickey thompson)

HR-2 Wheel
100% Rotary Forged ALUMINUM Wheel

One-Piece Rotary-Forged Aluminum Wheels With Distinctive Styling and a Highly Polished, Mirror-Like Finish, These Top Quality Wheels Will Make Your Hot Rod or Street Rod Stand Out From the Crowd! Available in 2 Styles, the Modern HR-1 and the Retro Style HR-2 Come in Sizes Up To an Incredible 20x16! The Perfect Wheels to Complement our Sportsman S/R Radial Tires.

# LIGHT WEIGHT
# TUBELESS CONSTRUCTION
# FORGED ALUMINUM, FULLY CNC MACHINED


and these are available in our bolt pattern

bottom line is, the wheels retail for about $200 each, and the tires go for $150 each (prices from Summit), which is rather cheap and a very good new alternative to running N/A calipers and using 15 inch runners

but my question is, will the backspacing fit and clear the calipers? or will you have to run spacers, or will they just not fit period

help me out here tire and wheel gurus!

hmmm most supra use 2.25 backspacing and thiers has 1.75 which is only off by 1/2 inch but i think we use the 2.25 backspacing mostly to clear the caliper. worst comes to worse if the 1.75 doesnt fit for some reason you can always get 1/2 inch spacers then.

are you sure the wheels are 200 each ? when i checked they were 650 each.

CCW is working a street package to go with these tires. When I called a few weeks ago they said it should be available in the next month. Basically it will use a sectioned 18" classic like thier race setup with this MT tire. I saw a preview of it at PRI and it looked like a great option for those with big brakes as well as the new vipers and vettes.

whatever happened to the WELD wheels that were supposely in development? 17 inch i believe?

Wheels are done, however MH never got on the ball and got the tires made (after 1.5 years of talking abotu them being "in the works". So until there is a set of tires made for this wheelset they are about useless.

it's a 17" but there aren't any tire company that makes any tire sizes that fit with it.. or at least not yet

How do these tires compare, to BFG DR's..are they better?
umm.... these are for the front, I don't think tread pattern or rubber compounds are going to matter much for a front runner .
