Need Tire thoughts/suggestions
Ok, it is getting to be about time to get rid of these stock F1s. I need to find something that will let me do more than spin through 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. I have been thinking about getting Nitto DRs in a 315 35 R17's. I don't want to get 275's as I have read repeatedly that the Nitto DRs run a little narrower than standard sizes. Plus, the 315s fit real nice on the stock 9" cobra rims.
Anyhow, my thoughts are to get the DRs in the back, and then some standard Nitto 555's up front. I have also entertained the idea of picking up the 555 II's. Those are the autocross version of the DRs. THey have the stiffer side wall which will be much nicer since I really don't get the car to the track hardly at all. The problem, they only come up to a 275 that I can find. The fear is they will be too narrow on the rim.
So, does anyone else have any thoughts about some sticky tires to get? Keep in mind they need to be able to plant 500+ of torque...and soon to be 500+ hp. The stock F1s couldn't handle stock, and they certainly can't handle the upgrades.
I am not stuck on NIttos...so, if someone might have some ideas about other brands and their ability to stick...throw them my way.
So, any thoughts?
