Per Fedex my new Hoosiers will be here tommorow, now is there any special way to have them mounted? The reason I ask is due to Im not screwing the rim to the tire unless I have too.

Mine are screwed as well. But no harm trying them without screws. After two passes, mark them to see if they spin on the rim. They will the first couple, but should settle after that.

Thats the plan, if I have to screw them then Ill deflate the tire and go to town

If you can get someone to mount them dry fine. If you lube em, screw em, they are going to rotate with your HP Brad. Mine are screwed and no problems, just make sure to get the template with the kit and screw inside and out.

Make sure you have a decent guy mount them. The Bogarts are pretty soft, you don't want some jackass prying like a mutha on a $500 rim or else you will egg them. If you are close to Lakewood, there is a trustworthy guy "Jorge" at Elite lll Detailing 31B Chambers Rd

Scuff em up when you mount them baby and take some vids !!![smilie=3g

If your gonna screw them, you may need tubes to. When I put screws in my Welds, the air pressure leaked out. I even blew all the air out of one on a launch and had to abort the run. I installed tubes and they have been sitting since last year and still have 20psi in them. Drilling them ain't so bad.

My last bogarts were drilled already when I purchased and didnt leak much at all. Maybe 1-2psi in 6months, Im gonna take my chances with not screwing them

I wish I had your old bogart. Would love to find a set of 16" fronts to try out at the next rental.
Get a hold of Nick "Hammer" he might let you borrow them, they have lots of meat left. The only thing is your would have to grind the front portion of the rear caliber some.
