What I did was just get some crap used 2000 Mustang 16" wheels and slap some 28X10X16 drag slicks on there. 12.0 at 114 so far; shooting for an 11.

A low 12 on any of the factory tires is pretty close to impossible, based upon what I have seen. Most guys at the track on stock rubber are working at getting a deep 13.

I was trying to find a drag radial for my 19" but can't find anything. Cause if I preload I have to have a full tank to get any traction.

They have them for a 19x9 rim I Assume you have the brembo wheels the tire size is 305/35/19 they work great.

Um, I don't think you can cram a 305 on to a 9" BBP wheel with that little sidewall. That over 12" of tread width and section width is going to be a touch wider than that.

I'm pushing it cramming my 10" bias slick on a 7.5" Mustang wheel and that's on a 28" tall tire. There's a lot of overhang and I have to air down to minimum 18 pounds to get the tire to sit flat. A radial won't flatten as you air down.

See I was worried that a 28" tall tire would lower my gear ratio close to 3.00..

You aren't going to get much more traction (from the tire) than you have now without buying wider wheels and tires.

The fact of it is that 19-20" wheels are great on the street and look really nice, but they SUCK for drag racing. There are very few tire options, and the ones available are outrageously expensive. They are also heavy, and the rotational mass will seriously slow you down.

I would give up on the whole "street tire drag racing" thing and get some 15-18" wheels and drag radials. Just keep them in the garage for trips to the strip and drive them down there.

Technically....on a 9 inch rim you shouldn't go wider than a 275. If someone has these MT's 305/35/19 on a Brembo wheel chime up.

I think that's what I'm going to have to do so I can drive on them on the street when I need them. Cause right now I can't preload and that's the best part of having a auto

I was running 8.4 stock with 18" base model rims at the 1/8, I also have 3.15 gears, 2013 5.0

I recently went to the track with 20" rims with 275/35/20 up front and 295/35/20, nitto invos, bama race tune, x pipe, bmr lcas, and I ran 8.5 alllllll night!

So I bought some drag radials and 15" rims and the brackets to be ale to run 15 inch rims, hopefully I run mid 7s because if not I'm changing gears.

But! If I do run those numbers I'm doing a paxton or roush kit, I don't want run higher gears unless I'm staying n/a

I've got an 11 auto and the best I ran with the stock tires was a 12.78. I've since upgraded the tires to Bridgestone S04s and added 3.73 gears... But haven't re-run to see improvement. I agree it'll be hard to get low 12s without slicks or at least DRs. I just bought a cheap pair of 17" Mustang wheels on Craigslist and will slap DRs or slicks on em and use them only at the races. I'd rather use those than chew through my street tires.

Keep us posted there is a huge debate about going 3.55 vs 3.73 on these auto but i have yet to find a auto 3.55 to compare

19-20 in the city, I was driving through the Mojave last month and captured these pictures over the course of about 30-45 minutes. Really flat, really straight on cruise control. I've never been able to duplicate that though!
