Default Re: tires that will pull the wheels

ive got a pic in a mag of a 4.6 stang pulling the wheels at e-town on 275 bfg's. depends on track prep but id say those bfg's are probably the smallest you could go with. ive also seen my friend pull the wheels with 275 50 15 bfg's.

I pulled the front wheel with 255/50/16 BFG DR's.

It was only about 6 inches but it was up.

26*15*10 ET Drags will definitely do it, as I have just found out. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" />

I may have to rethink tires soon as I will be upping the ante, whether spraying, blowing, or big stall with auto conversion. Haven't made up my mind yet.

245/50/16 inch nittos and 1.58 60's pull a little wheelie. But car runs better with all 4 on ground <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" />

with skinnies up front also <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="gr_images/icons/wink.gif" />
