First time out to the track with this car. Weather was overcast 60* raining in the morning. Track Prep wasnt so good no one seemed to be running where they should be. Plus i have 6 year old good year eagles and 4.10's so traction was an issue. :bang:
Best run of the day:
60ft-2.12
330ft-5.793
1/8 ET-8.779
1/8-82.87MPH
1000' ET-11.324
1000' MPH-96.61
1/4 ET-13.443 @106.83
I know its got more in it. Next time out to the track i will have new tires or some DR's.

BFG Drag radial TA are good if you really need a street tire. If you want any real traction for the strip you need to get a real track tire and keep your street tire on the street. Like anything you really can't have both worlds, a true street tire and plenty of traction at the strip.

I was looking at thoes. The look like a nice tire. I havent decided if im going to get a DR or a street tire. What is the life of a DR on the street?

they dont last long. If I were you I'd just get a second set of stock rims and put some Mickey stickies on there

Not long at all because you will reck the car if you get into a drip of rain.

That's not true . I drive mine in the rain without a problem . When I picked my ride up after getting it dynoed , I drove 70 mph in the rain on the parkway for 20 miles . I just use common sense and a little extra caution around turns . They re supposed to last 10,000 -15,000 miles . We'll see about that . I only have @ 2,000 on them now . Still look good .I bought the nitto's because they have actual tread on them .Not like BFG's or M/T 's . The Nitto's were a better choice for me because its almost a full D/D and they have very good street maners .

That's not true at all. It's all about how you drive. I had to drive home 40 miles in snow on ET Street Radials before. It wasn't *that* bad. I wouldn't recommend it, but you control the situation.

At the minimum, put a Nitto Drag Radial on the car. I had 18 inch BFG Comp T/A KDW tires on my 02 WS6, that went low 1.8 60's all day.

Yea, right last summer i got caught in a down pour and was OK until i came up to a overpass and hit the water running down hill and spun out and landed in the center isle and sunk in the mud but got lucky and only bent the two pass. rims and axle w/ M/T ET streets.

I have 555r's on 18's and I don't care how good you are at driving in the rain with them. I left my parents house in LaPorte and got to Katy 2hrs later with no traffic. I then got outside of San Antonio and had to pull over for 6 hrs because it got to bad to drive in the rain. I couldn't go past 40mph in the rain without the car sliding going straight no less.

Asphalt or concrete + 555r's + rain = a disaster waiting to happen. But I'm sure any DR is like this.

Buy some cheap ass 15" rims and put a real tire on it for the strip like SLICKS.
