    Would definately be interested in seeing those wheels on the car. Tried to do some research...2006-present c6 z06 front wheels are 18 x 9.5 with 40mm offset. Your saying use those wheels with a z06 stock size 275/35/18 tire. I was considering drag radials. Are those wheels direct bolt on or will you need spacers. Thanks for your help.

    Perfect. That's what I'm looking for. My car is a manual trans and even with a small burnout and leaving at 2000rpm from the tree with stock michelin ps2's, I spun 1st thru 3rd gear. Can you send me a pic of your car with the wheels after you get them mounted. I appreciate all the help.

    Hey mike no problem i will post pics as soon as i put them on the car... its probably going to look like shit bc the wheels on my v is black and the Z06 wheels are polished but i dont give a rats ass as long as i can leave on boost i am happy.... i had some Mickey Thompson on my last mustang before the shebly and they werent as good as these new NTO5 DRAG RADAIL... these tire are unbelievable on the street so you know how they are going to hook at track....

    Hey steve they make the 18 inch Nitto NTO5 drag radail in a couple more sizes 305/45/18 and 315/40/18... so to answer your question yea.. the only thing is that the 305/45/18 might be a lil to tall its like 29 inchs tall i used that size on my mustang to kill alil of the gear in rear end... the taller the tire it makes the car have less gear and the shorter the tire like the 285/40/18 make a car seem like it has more gear in the rear end....

    What's the difference between the dry filter and oiled filter? I'm about to order mine and don't know which one to get?

    I've been running K&N-style, oiled filters for the last 20 years in my cars.
    All you have to do is:
    1. When you wash the filter and re-oil it, make sure you a) don't over oil it and b) let enough time for it to dry - I've usually waited until next morning
    2. Invest in the MAF cleaner from PepBoys or your local auto parts store and use it from time to time

    3. If the car behaves funny after a recent cleaning, keep your foot off the gas, and go home and clean the maf

    Thanks I might go with dry just to be safe. I don't trust myslef oiling it too much and possibly messing up the MAF.

    Re: Just installed Airaid CAI

    My local dealer told me in order to not void the warranty I had to use a dry filter and buy it through the dealer and have them install it.
    I don't know if that's true or not, maybe they're just trying to make the extra $ but I did it that way to make sure there are no warranty issues.
    I'm very happy with the Airaid intake. The supercharger whine is awesome but I can't say I feel any increase in power even though there is probably
    a slight increase.

    According to their chart, the dry filter flows much less than their oiled and requires service at a more frequent interval; however, I'd have to assume the dry filter flows well enough to be effective.

    My dealer's response to me asking about the Air Raid with Dry Filter....

    Emissions wise if it is C.A.R.B. certified you are ok there. But an air filter related failure may not be covered by Cadillac.
