Re: Rear Drag Slicks

Greg,

I've seen guys run anything from 275/60/15, 295/50/15, N50x15 and eveything in between with your combo....A friend of mine had N50x15 on his 1968 Firebird back in the day.... Here is a link on that http://www.jegs.com/i/M%26amp%3BH/676/MSS-006/10002/-1# That may be too wide for your car

In a P Metric designation I would try P275/50/15.....Here is another link where you can click on the tire & get info on it http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...redirect=false

What type of tire and size are on it right now?

1) 1969 Camaro RS 396 TH 400, 12 bolt 3:73 sold 1994

Re: Rear Drag Slicks

I have stock 15x7 rally wheels, I don't know the tire size because the car is in the shop getting my new 434 engine installed. I will only use the Weld Pro Stars for drag racing. When on the street I will use my rally wheels.
