I have a set of 17" Bogart wheels and am looking at putting a set of M&H Drag Radials on them

I've found one other thread where the 275/50r17 works and has the correct diameter for my combination that will keep my ETS happy

  • Tread Width: 9.5"
  • Section Width: 10.5"
  • Diameter: 28.0"
  • Circumference: 88.0"
  • Rim Size: 9.0"

As I was looking at the M&H web page I also noticed they sell a 325/45r17 with the correct diameter

  • Tread Width: 11.3"
  • Section Width: 12.6"
  • Diameter: 28.0"
  • Circumference: 88.0"
  • Rim Size: 11.0"

Has anyone tried to squeeze a 325 onto the Bogart wheels? The safe bet is obviously the 275 tire, but that extra bit of tread on the tarmac would be nice.

Thanks,

John-

For future reference - I Called M&H and talked to the RaceMaster Himself - yes the 325/45r17 will fit on the 17" wheels that are 10" wide.

Customer Service at M&H rocks! Very knowledgeable about fitment, answered all my questions and is very enthusiastic about helping customers improve their 60' times! :)

For the Archives!

The M&H 325/45R17 Drag Radial fits perfectly on 17x10" Bogarts. On the car with 30psi in them, the measured rollout is almost exactly 88" - Perfect for the ETS with my front 20" MPSS combination.

Do you face any problem running 20 in front ?
Is it better than all 18 ?
So far - no, I've put about 120 miles on the combination in street driving and several 'practice' launches on tarmac. :wink:

Is it Better?? time will tell - It's certainly cheaper than buying 4 new 18" wheels and tires, I researched the heck out of which direction to go and found a couple of others on this forum running similar combinations with success.

What size are your front wheels 265/35r20?
My normal street tires are Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Front - 285/35ZR-20
Rear - 335/30ZR-20

Switching to the Bogarts with 325/45R17 M&H I have the exact rollout as the MPSS

I've put some more street miles on the Bogart/M&H combo, so far no real drama up to about 120ish in a straight line. At 30psi They definitely feel a bit squishy around corners, I wouldn't want to be too aggressive on turns with them on.

Thnx for the info. I'm running MPSS 265/35r20 in front so was curious.
I'm guessing you swap the rearset regularly? Or are you primarly straight lining it?
This is a drag/roll specific setup, I'll swap them on, drive to the track and rip off a few passes, drive home and swap the MPSS rears back on.

followup - So far this wheel/tire combination works well, I drove 90 miles to a local track, aired them down and thrashed on the car all day with multiple no-prep dig and roll races, aired them back up and drove home. No drama!

I managed to out - 60' a Tesla model 3 performance. For the unprepped surface I set my launch control settings WAY soft @ 3200 rpm and 2psi. Can't wait to get to a timed event so I can get some official 60' times.

Advan GT
Front - 20x10.0 5-114.3 +35
Rear - 20x12.0 5-114.3 +20

PILOT® SUPER SPORT
Front - 285/35ZR20
Rear - 335/30ZR20

17x10" Bogarts with M&H 325/45R17 Drag Radial.

be very careful - I did a lot of research to make sure my front to rear rollout matched to protect my ETS. This combination of wheels and tires are exactly the same diameter/rollout. I verified using a cloth tape measure wrapped around the mounted tires.

Reach out to Michael at ETS, They are a distributor and he should be able to get you a set of wheels.

Welll, for my front MPSS 285 the recommended rim width is 9.5" - 11"

The tire manufacturer will have the recommended width listed on their web site.

Research is your friend, All of this information is out there, as my kids say - GTS!

(Google That Shit) :)

Thought I would update this thread with real world results. I couldn't be happier with this combination, this run I managed a 1.4 60'

Rear 17" M&H at 17psi
Front 20" MPSS at 20psi

What about street racing? Do they hook during launch on non prepped road?
Well enough to spank the pants off of a Tesla model 3 Performance. To be honest, we 60' about the same, but after that I pulled bus lengths.

How many PSI do you run on the street?
25psi seems to be good for rolls, any less feels pretty sketch above 120ish. 17psi is the sweet spot for a dig launch.

Yes OEM Brake calipers - BUT you must replace the OEM caliper bolts with a set of low-profile bolts. I used the Titanium Works kit.

Could I fit the 17x10s over CCB?
If the calipers are in the original location, yes, but if the kit uses spacers to move the caliper - then No way.

when you got the bogart wheels and tires did you also get new front tires to make sure everything was in spec or had the front tires been driven on previous?
nope, used my existing set. As stated numerous time in this thread the tire rollout was exactly the same 285/35ZR20 MPSS front and 325/45R17 M&H rears.
