I'm picking up some 17" BFG drag radials tonight. I plan on only running them at the strip.

My questions are:

1) Which is the lighest 17" LX rim? The steelies or the aluminum? I'm assuming the aluminum, but you never know.

I also noticed there are 3 or 4 different kinds of 17" aluminum rims... Depending on what year and model LX (Charger, Magnum, 300C, etc). Does anyone know which OEM 17x7 LX rim is the lightest?

2) I plan on running 275-40-17 BFG Drag Radials on the stock 17's. I know another guy put that same size tire on a 17" steelie without a problem. The tire will probably bulge a bit, but that oughta be good for drag racing. Remember, I'm running these at the strip only.

I realize I'll be close to shifting to 4th at the strip. That's why I have the Predator. With it, I hope to be able to run the 1/4 mile using only 3 gears.

Thanx for any help.
