    Which should I buy? I didnt like the look of Draglites on 4th gen F bodys until I recently saw some killer looking TA's with them, but I'm still not sure about how they would look on a LT1 Formula.

    If you have any pics of them on a LT1 style Formula please post them.

    I knew a guy from NJ who has a '94 Formula with Prostars on it and it looks incredible... I checked his site but his pics aren't up anymore.

    i vote the TSW Mondello (in hyper black*)

    i think both of thoughs rims look kind of out dated for the car but to answer your question, Prostars.

    Eh, I was leaning towards 17x9/17x11 Grand Sports at first, then some 17x9/17x11 Torque Thrust II's, but the only real racing I do is straight line, plus I think that cars with fats and skinnies just look mean.

    They dont make any wide tires in a 16". I have a 16x8 on the back now, and the widest tire I've seen has been a 255/50/16, and thats a rare size. I thought about the Telstars, but after seeing them on a formula, I fell out of love with them. They just dont look good IMO on a LT1 style formula.

    So far I'm leaning towards the Prostars. It is going to be a while before I get them either way, Im putting about $2k towards my SRT4 so I can pay that down enough to sell it so I wont have a stupid car payment, so It'll take some overtime hours to save up enough to get the wheels, but it shouldnt take more than a couple months.

    I've also been kicking around the idea of getting some old school style Torque Thrust D's custom made in 15x3.5 and 15x10 with the correct offsets and backspacing for my application. I think that would look sick, and I havent heard of ANYONE doing that to a 4th gen F body.
