I have a Gen 2 Twin Turbo (currently 600whp) and I need recommendations for smaller rear wheels and recommended tire sizes for slicks. I made my first trip to the track this weekend and as expected traction was my worst enemy. That and my horrible timing with a clutch leaving the light. I know I've seen pictures of what appeared to be 15 or 16inch wheels on Gen 2's running slicks. Any thoughts or opinions would be great! Thanks!!

I have some 17" CCW Classics I could sell you.  Wrinkle slicks fit up to 17" wheels.  Lots of size options if you look at Summit, Mickey Thompson, etc

CCWs also make a 16" wheel for the Gen 1/2 Vipers that fit 14.5 x 16 x 28" wrinkles (mine are Hoosiers).  They also make a set of 12 x 16 x 26" wrinkle slicks for these wheels, but not much else for 16"

I have 15" wheels and tires on my '99 TT GTS.  I also have a GForce race trans, steel carrier caps, Mcleod clutch, chrome moly dsahaft, $11,000 MW halfshafts, 33 spline MW spool and Billet yokes. 

15" requires a smaller 12.2 rear brake pieces from Wilwood brakes.  I do norecommend this as the kit I got was incomplete and cost me $350 extra for parts stated as included but not in box and changing from junk rotors to premium hi carbon rotors and Ceramic (high speed) pads.  I re designed the "kit" I bought and all the parts are listed in the How To section on this website

What whp are you running? what transmission?  gear set?
