Re: My new auto

That must be mental fun to drive. Love the fatty DRs in the back completely filling the fenderwell.

Re: My new auto

Dude those MTs look SICK on those 18" wheels. You have me seriously reconsidering my choice in the Nittos. What kind of mileage are you expecting to get out of those?

Just depends on how much I hit the track. But I hope to get least 8000-10000.

No kidding. I'm definitely going to have to look into those then. I don't think I was going to get near that kind of life out of the NT555Rs. What exactly are you running in the front and rear?

If you want you can PM me, I'm not trying to derail this thread too badly.

I wondered if that's what they were ... big ****in tire there! What exactly are the fronts? Did you have much trouble finding something that was almost 29" or are there a bunch of options? I'll probably run something a bit wider up front.

I still can't figure out what I want to do for wheels/tires! I've thought about just getting four 18x10s with 275-295 street tires on them for grip on the road/corners and saving up for some 15s to put on the rear for track days. Choices, choices.

No the fronts are about 28". Same as stock height..I wanted to drive car like I race it..tired of swapping wheels..if I feel frisky I might throw the bigs and little's on

I could see definite advantages to that. What brand did you go with for the fronts? Any suggestions on what would be a good match for those MTs in the rear (both visually and performance wise).?

Re: My new auto

I'm guessing it's pretty much sunny all the time where you're at or this is a sunny day car.

My experience with DRs is if a baby deer breathes on the road in your lane you're facing 180. Especially whent they are cold.

We get WAY to much moisture, of all kinds, up here, to run DRs all the time.

I live in Ohio, so it's far from sunny all the time here, but I do only drive my stang in warm, dry weather.

What's you opinion on the Sportlines now that you've had them installed for a while? Did you do springs only or the kit with the shocks? Did you ever run K springs, and if so which one do you like better?

never ran k springs. But really like the sprt lines as they had the lowest drop. MNot to bad. Not real hard or bouncey either. We see how they like launches at the track saturday.

So is that with just springs or did you get the kit with the shocks too? Are you worried at all about rubbing when you launch?

Also, where did you get the MTs at? Jeg and Summit both have decent pricing, but they are charging $100 for shipping!!

I felt like it was kinda high. Shipping was $19, additional shipping charge of $19, and then a $12.95 "Delivery and Handling Charge." They also charge tax ... so I might as well see if anywhere local sells them. When you add in $100 of tax and fees it almost can't be worth it to buy them online unless local shops are marking them up A LOT.

American Muscle ships tires for free ... unfortunately they don't carry the ET Street Radial IIs in 305/45, only 305/35 for 18s. I might be going NT05Rs anyways since I have found some decent deals on them around the web and they are probably just as good for the power level and ET goals I have.

I was going to get those but everything I hear is that the nt05s or mt et streets II are so much better that they aren't worth it.

Yep that is true. The MT do come in a 305/35 that is 27" tall. I might try them next.

I wonder how well those fit on a 10" rim though? The MT website shows that as the minimum ... I wish I could find a good looking 10.5" or 11" rim, then I would get the Nitto NT05R 315/40.

Re: My new auto

it says they will fit. Mine are 305/45 and no issues with fitting on a 10" rim.

---------- Post added at 01:37 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:37 PM ----------

also 305/315 remember you want some power to turn that tire. That is a lot of meat to get going.

What says they will fit? The Nitto site lists 10.5-12.5" as the approved rim size.
