I just finished up witha head and cam swap and Just tearing up pretty new tires Currently i have bfgoodwrenches KDW2's I'm making about 400+ to the wheels. With stock gears and rear end And need good rear tires. I was curious to see what kinda of street radials you guys are running. Or what you would recommend as a good tire for me. Because the tires I have on there only have maybe 1000 miles I would like to try and take them off and sell them before they get to worn out. Thanks guys.

My Toyo Proxes TQs hook on my cam only 3.73 stalled auto...do you want a DR or street radial?

Khumo XS are good but pricey and are on back order. I like them for a street tire tho

Just a street radial. I might go to the drag strip maybe 2 times a year. So a good street tire is what I'm looking for

Go with nitto 555's. I am making roughly 400rwhp and just got some 555's(not 555r's) and I am very impressed.

I had good luck with the nitto drs, i dont go to the strip but once or twice a year, but if its warm out i have no prob hooking up and tire life has lasted twice as long as my other drs

Any tire that is capable of holding the power will not last long. The KDW II's are a good street tire. If you are worried about tearing up expensive tires perhaps Sumitomo/Nexen/Maxxis may be for you, or lightening up with the right foot.
