Has anyone successfully mounted slicks on their truck? I have a friend that is trying to find a wheel / brake combination that will let him run slicks to improve traction on his SRT-10. I think an 18" wheel with drag radials would probably fit, but a 305/40/18 tire would only be about 27.5" tall, a lot shorter than the stock 31.5" high tires. I think that'll screw the gearing and top end up pretty bad.

I think the best thing to do would be to downgrade the rear brakes to something like a quad piston 12" setup and try to fit 31" slicks on 15 or 16" wheels. Do you think it can be done? I am confident we can find the wheels, but I am having trouble finding suitable 12" brakes because I don't know where to look. Do you have any suggestions?

well i just ordered 2 rear 305/45/18 Nitto slicks mounted on 18'' aluminium CCW, they do fit the truck without mods to the rear brakes. Concerning the height i will surely loose some, but will obviously be able to pass all 675hp to the ground.

My question is : i know that top speed will be affected but what will be the consequences over 1/4 mile run and 200 meters run ???

Ok, how about this... what's the stock bolt pattern? It should be as simple as finding a brake kit with the right pattern, right? Or is there an issue with brake balance between F/R? If so, could that be solved by a competent brake shop by adjusting the proportioning valve?

Here is a link to a page with pictures of Bogart 18X10 wheel with 305x45x18 Nitto drag slick mounted. The wheel is custom made specifically for the Ram SRT-10, rear only at this time. ( We are working on getting a front. ) These are very high quality spun forged wheels. They are available special order only. I looked for 3 months for an off the shelf wheel that would fit and could find none that would clear the brakes.

HAHA. John can correct me, but I think the first run my TT did, the breaks were loose just hanging on the axles :) Not even in place :)
