Slicks or drag radials on 10 holes

I was wondering what size slicks or drag radials to run on my 10 hole wheels. Any pictures of what you guys are running so I can see how they look. I want the most contact between the tire and the track.

Either would work for you. Probably an 8" wide tire would be the max width on the 10 hole wheels.
How much HP are you working with?

Try our site sponsors. Some of them give discounts to forum members.
Visit their forums for instructions.

LRS

The MT ET Streets seem to be a more popular choice these days.
I believe a set of those coupled with some aftermarket control arms and maybe an air bag on the passenger's side wll provide you the traction you seek.

Sorry, but you can't do that on here. It is the same as advertising for your company/workplace and the administrator doesn't allow it unless he has spoke with and approved the company for advertising.

Run ET Streets bro. They look awesome and hook good. I won't put another tire on the back of my Stangs

I wasn't aware Discount Tire was a sponsor?
And, his tag under his name says "member" not "Staff".

If that is the case, then I apologize for the mistake.

Measure your rim width, then go to a tire sales website and look up the tire sizes you are interested in. They will usually advise you of the correct rim width.

Too narrow a tire and the rim will pull the outer edges up reducing the contact patch size.
To wide a tire and the tire will either cup in the middle at lower pressures or ballon out in the middle at higher pressures also reducing the contact patch size.
It is very important to match tire and rim widths.

It looks like the optimum tire size is a 235/60/15 for the stock 10 hole wheels.

Here's a Tire Size Comparer so you can get an idea of what different sizes look like on the rim.
