What Tires are you running?

I'm looking at swapping out my stock goodyears soon and I'm interested in options. Nitto drag radials are my first thought as well as going wider. I'm trying to see what anyone else has had success/failure with. Any street/strip or front/rear or all around opinions will be appreciated.

With any decent power you are going to have to choose. Traction or life. Can't have both

True. I'm looking more for traction. if we cared about tire life we'd all drive fiestas.

I loved my toyo r888's but they're expensive. Bfg kdw2 were good rears as well. Probably going nitto 555r this round.

The Nitto 555r's is what I'm looking at. Are you just staying stock up front(like it matters) or going same brand all around? My Shelby isn't a DD but it's also not a garage queen either so I'll be driving in all conditions.

Meh, I haven't matched tires or brands in years. I'll be running kdw2 on front

I'm About to replace my GY F1Supercars with Michelin PS2. I've heard nothing but good reviews...only downside is price.
