That's a great size to run, the 26" tall tire really helps gearing out of the hole. But you will be shifting into 4th before the traps (only downside, but with diablos new crom update you can bring the shift point to 6200 which will keep you in 3rd at the end of the run). Since you have an R/T I'd suggest buying some 17x9" torq thrust m's, you will need a 1/8" spacer though (unless you machine the wheel hub some). Good luck!
Oh yeah and-I don't have any experience with these, but a lot of people run 17x9 cobra replicas as well, and I believe that may be even a cheaper solution ($110/rim). Ask Speedy though, he runs them so he'll know for sure
I actually have a set of Cobra OEM 17x9s so if they'll work with no issues that would be an option. I'd like to find a 17" wheel that looked similar to black Mopar 10 wheels. I'll look into those torque thrust wheels, thanks for the info.
