yep these are bogarts. We had to install stock mustang brakes on the front of both cars so they cleared the 15" skinnies. I can have 17" skinnies made to clear your Saleen brakes though from Bogart. They will even do a 17"x10" matching rear. The cost is around $1800 for the rims in 17". About $1680 in 15"

fastmover..thanks for the pics and info on the Speedlab Bogarts...very good to know.

Wow....look at all these Saleen Speedlab Drag Cars on here now ....I gotta add mine too

If one does go with the 15 inch for the rears (best for the needed sidewall in high horse drag cars) You will have to get something like the Roush rear swaybar relocation kit to move the swaybar and its stock mounting posts to clear the rims.
17's bolt right on of course.

If you go with 4.10 gears then a 17 with 28 inch tall drag radials like what I run also will work. The M&H Drag Radial is deadly now. I have tried them all...and BFG's work awesome too...But I do think the M&H ones work abit better on the street also.
