The tires on my 14X7 Mugnum 500's that came off a mid 70's something or other are severly dry rotted. I think the 14" wheels look dorky and can't justify buying tires for them. I like the Weld Draglites for a number of reasons, and I was wondering how they hold up on the street, such as oxidation ect.. I'm thinking of using 15X6 with 205/60X15 and 15X7 in the back with 225/60X15 in the rear.

I plan on lowering the car about an inch also, any thoughts, thanks.

i don't have draglites. i run convo pros. they're about the same. both are drag wheels and IIRC, both have a polished & satin finish. they still look brand new even after 6 years! i also am running 15x7 rear and 15x6 front with 235/60/15 and 205/60/15 respectively. people say you shouldn't run drag wheels because it's softer and it could bend. i say neener, neener, neener. no problems here. i've also lowered my car an inch from stock and no problems with rubbing, but i am running stiffer springs.

I run 15 x 8's and 15 x 5's. If I let them get wet and don't dry them off they turn into spotted cheetahs from the water spots. If the spots stay on there for a while your looking at some amount of time with the Mothers polish to get them clean again. I haven't tried any kind of carnuba to try and shed the water. It would probably build up and discolor the wheels.
