    Welcome to our hell that is drag wheels. I don't know if anyone is running Billet Specialties wheels, but if you get them to fit with no alterations PLEASE post!!!


    you know what, i'm surprised FRPP hasn't released a set of 15" drag wheels for s197's. They're already making cams and what not.....

    I have seen plenty of Bogart wheels that fit nicely, and ones that don't fit so nicely! I think the earlier years, the 15-inch Bogarts were not spec'd out properly. But lately, they seem to fit cleanly. I particularly like their 17-inch wheels like on Peter Del Pino's ride. That looks awesome. Give Bogart a call, I am sure they have the sizes spec'd out.

    Bogarts are the only 15" wheel out there that fits without sticking out past the wheel wells. The drawbacks are the price (~$1400) and they aren't street legal. Greg Weld Wheels seem to be the only hope out there, though their first run of skinnies do not fit without a spacer. I have spoken with Michael at GW and he promises that the wheel is already being redesigned to fit in the wheel well and without spacers. Till then you can fit a regular weld skinny with about a 1" spacer up front. For the rears the only hope is the old Weld XP series. The 15x9 with 5.5BS fits with longer studs and swaybar relocation, but they too stick out past the wheel well.

    I have a set of Rodlite XP's 15x9 5.5 BS extra laying around.
