It's all preference like what brand of oil to use... You're going to get different opinions on here. Also there's a lot more to consider than just power. Is it your DD? How often if at all do you track it? Do you ever drive in the rain? Personally I have Nitto NT555's and I love them. Nice wet weather handling and is a challenge to break my car loose even with TC off lol. (But that may just be cause its slow )

That's what I'm running now 275/35/20 with 4.10 gears and I think i need a slick 3/4 ds 1/4 non too much fun. Tracked it once stock but not since then I wanted the full build to see the difference.

Oh well in that case I'd stick with Nittos but there's nothing wrong with experimenting with other tires lol I just can't give any recommendations

If it's a "daily driver", you'll be happy with the Nitto Drag-Radials. I had them on mine in a 305 version and they were great! Lasted pretty "decent", but had great hookup and decently sticky.

If it's a actual DD that sees rain ect go with the 555rs over the mickey street radials. This is of your looking for a DD drag radial.

I have to decide this very thing next shortly. For a street tire that is not a DR, the Mickeys are right up there. Although my local guy can do Toyo Proxes for $220 per corner mounted/balanced/warrantied/lifetime rotations at a 285/35/18 size so I may just be going that route... Hard to go wrong with the Toyos.

Nt555r. Used to run those when i was around that power level. Great for daily driving. Drove good in the rain, hooked just fine and last quite awhile

Since were on tires I could use your guys expertise. I currently have the factory Michelin 215/65/17 tires on my pony. My car is not lowered if that matters so would these tires work for me? Would my factory wheels for these new tires fit if need be?

I recently got a set of 275/40/19 Sumitomo HTR Z III's off Tire Rack and am very impressed with the overall grip and road manners, especially for the price. Quieter then my stock Pirelli all seasons and grip like glue with 275's all around. I would not order them from anywhere else then Tire Rack, because they are currently on sale for $60 cheaper per tire than AM.

AM should price match.

They will but remember, AM is free shipping and Tirerack is not. Its not a crazy amount to ship but still, depends where you live and what the rate they give you is.

Good point. So it may be the sane. Question sir. If you were to
take an educated guess, how many miles would the Nitto's drag radials last driving in a conservate manor? Meaning, not doing burnouts and 99.9 percent highway millage.

Lol then what is the point of having them?

The 555Rs are a soft compound... maybe 10k if you go easy on them. I'd run Mickeys or BFGs or a legit good radial before I ran DRs.

Radials for the street, set slicks or ET streets on a spare set of drag tires for when you take it to the strip. Drag radials kind of half *** it IMO.

Go with the Toyo proxies! I've had the Mickey Thompson Street comps in the past… They suck.

They are too wide for the stock 7" wide wheels. 235 is the max width tire.

Thanks sir. Looks like I will have to step up on wider wheels to fit a 255 tire. What size wheel works with a 255 17 tire?

8" wide will give the 255 a little bit of a bulge look. 9" wide will be flush straight up and down. If you run 9" wide you might as well jump it up to a 265 or even 275 wide if you want.

Would there be any clearance issues with the 275's? My car is not lowered. I would consider getting 275's all around. So get a 9 inch wheel to fit perfect?

I have a New Edge with 285s all around and lowered 1" all around. No idea why it wouldn't work on a S197 but I don't have one so I couldn't tell you for sure.

Great. Perfect. I think 275's will be my choice. Now, just which tire to go with. My buddy is a huge fan of BF Goodrich tires.

I run a 275 on a 9" out back on mine.
I was gonna end up going bfg but I went with a continental extreme contact instead. Beautiful tread pattern and amazing grip even in the winter

Is it silly to run 275's on front as well as the rear? My thought process for running all the same size tires was to be able to rotate tires to maximize the tred life.
