Here's another.. http://my.is/forums/f95/255-50-mt-et-streets-now-pics-314593/

Try a search on "drag radials" or "drag".

I had pages of stuff show up.

If you're looking for actual "slicks" it might be a little more difficult. The smallest I've seen anyone put out back is a 16" to fit over the brakes. If you wanted to convert the rear brakes then you could go smaller.

If you are looking to do ET streets, not the DR but the slick, you are probably gonna want to do 26x10.5x16 ET's on FD3S RX7 wheels. They are probably the best bang for the buck since the wheels only weigh 13lbs each. These are tube tires, so you are gonna need to take them to a shop that has experience mounting tires with tubes. Hope this helps.

Here's a pic of my ET streets 26x10.5x16.







Like everyone says, its the best bang for the buck and the RX7 wheels are light (13lbs) a piece like phil said. But you dont need to use tubes unless you plan on droping the tire pressure less than 12psi. I had a buddy of mine mount them for me, and you have to be careful not to strech the tire when filling w/ air. It tells you what pressure you should fill to and just make sure you dont over fill.

Hope you find a good set man it makes a world of difference.

I am dropped on eibach prokit and tociko shocks (aprox. 1.5" total) and the fenders are rolled in the back, and I dont rub at all. You may have to do some minor rolling of the fender but thats it.
