nitto drag radials are a common choice. As for something that will last and still be a good track tire, its going to be hard to find. Somone that knows what theyre talkin about will chime in here sooner or later
i'm also getting bullitt 17x8's as well for my car at some point. i don't plan on doing an extreme amount of racing. it rains here a decent amount so good handling/traction would be good. drag radials would be alright, but again, i don't plan on racing all that much... so what brand and size tires should i get?
the size you need are 245/45/17's. i love my BFG g force t/a kdw's. if you don't want to be able to rotate and want a little more grab, you *could* put 275/40's on the rear, but it won't handle quite as well as 245/45's will. a good quality street tire along with tlok can still get you 2.1 or so 60's.
I was just planning on about once or twice a month at the track, then about every saturday night that i dont have to work go down to 39th street to beat some ricers with my friends. and thats just a regular street road.
