They are legal, just make sure they are DOT approved. With 4.10s you might want a slick for the track, that's a lot of power and a lot of gear. Especially if you went with a shorter tire. There are some barely legal slicks out there, again just check for the DOT approval. But if it's your DD I wouldn't do that. Anything is better than the stock street tires. All depends on what your plans are for the car.

Need to dial in your suspension. Get a better tire and mess with the pressure in them

I have 4.10's also and I roll around on street tires at times.
Drag radials look at nt05r's

Dude........

First off use punctuation. I'm sure I'm not the only one tired of having to try and read your run on sentences.

And second stop making multiple threads when you can ask all these questions in the same thread.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

How big of a DR do you have? I have a 2014 GT and at the track I run a Mickey Thompson 325/50 on a 15" wheel (10" wide). Big tire, but fits in the wheel well nicely. And really hooks.

ET streets hook but a 245/40/18 is rather skinny

they are not a "street tire", the sole purpose of them is to be able to be driven on the street to get you to the track and back.. they are dot approved so yes they can legally be driven on the street but thats not what they are ment for... if you attempt to daily these you will be lucky to get 2k miles out of them and they are pretty dangerous in the rain...

If these work out for you that's a pretty sweet low buck set-up. I would use a tire with a little more sidewall though - sidewall means more than width. A 275/60/15 MT DR will hook much better than 305/30/19 MT DR.

Good luck with it, I sincerely hope the budget set up works

Yea, I was originally looking at mounting a tire on a stock rim, then those wheels popped up, The tire was what would fit on the stock rim, they sit nicely on the 18X9's I here you on sidewall, didn't really think about deflection and the a larger sidewall would allow for it a little better, but everything I read about DR's indicated that they don't deflect like slicks.
We'll see how it goes, everyone's a critic on these forums! Some guy was hammering me cause they are too skinny. I'd like to get to the track this week, but it looks like T'storms, next opportunity will be 6/10.

Over the years I've tried a few 35 & 40 profile drag radials and thought they were ok at best. On factory 18X9.5 rims on my GT500 I ran Nitto NT05R 305/45/18 and they hooked very well on the street, could dead hook from a 5mph roll and that was a pretty strong car. That tire also had a decent sidewall height and will wrinkle some at lower pressures. Overall it was a great, dry weather street tire for a weekend car.
