Re: Need tire advice!!
I would get a set of mickey thompson et streets. Nitto drag radials are good on a car to about 350 rwhp, after that, a better tire is needed. I run 315/35/17 nittos on my LS1 Camaro SS and it dead hooks, but I would say I'm around 330 whp, and it still have the factory gear without a big converter. My friend had them on his Trans Am with bolt ons, 3800 converter, and 3.73 gears, and he would just blow them away foot braking it. Here is another friend of mines Trans Am with 450 rwhp. Runs 315/35/17 ET street radials with a 3800 converter, and a 12 bolt with 4.11s. He did this foot braking.
