Have them on my 98, they are great just watch out driving them in the cold and in the rain drive like a grandma. Better yet don't get caught in the rain with the 555Rs.

I like the 555Rs on this stock modular but I'm sure with a little more power I'd blow the treads off. My Cobra only making 325 ft lbs at the wheels would torch the BFGs I had on it...

How are the Mickey Thompsons in the rain? Tread life a little better than a standard drag radial? Seems like a lot of ppl run the cheap Sumis for street tires and they are ok with them. I have not tried those.

I'm sure he wants something that'll last more than 4k miles though.

Thats why I said street comps if he wants a street tire that will handle power.

Scotty the street comps are the best street tire i have found. I have Tried the regular 555's. The hankook v12's. And the invos, they are Nothing compared to the street comps. As far as tread life they hold up dam good so far. I make 440/400 on motor and they work for me. I have not sprayed on them yet though.
