i told ya not faster than mid to low 14's ... better tires definetly needed .. if i were u i'd buy another set of track rims and but drag radials on those ... the bfg goodrich drag radials wear down very quickly for daily driven

I mean the car pulled like HELL when i FINALLY hooked I saw 96mph trap speed a couple of times and that was only really hooking up in like the top end of 3rd and up I can def see me getting into the 13s but traction is a major issue obviously..................time for some tires

ok what would recommend other than D/R becuase they are nice and all but I will need some tires before long anyway for daily driving. but i guess i could always get some of those on the side for just track purposes.

get 2 16" rims with drag radials and just get good all season performance tires for your 17s man. just swap off the front 2 when you wanna go out to the strip or pouncin on the street. sound like a plan?

hey, there's 2 svt contour rims in usable shape on ebay for 25 bucks + shipping with 2 days left on the auction. item # 8041801432. check it out, could be exactly what you need for the drag radials if you don't have any 16" rims yet. the bfg drag radials don't seem to come in 16" though. good luck dude.

if you are still lookin for good treads, im gonna tell you right now that my 15" rotas w/ falken ZE-512 tires are the bomb..i hardly spin at all ( still some wheel hop) but i get good traction all the time..i didnt realize how good they were until i put my old 16s back on and saw how much i spun in second...it got my 1/4 down from around the 16 mark to now a 15.2, tires is everything, you could drop a second with good tires
