    I run MT Drag 275/40-17's on my stock wheels on the rear. They just clear lowered and all.

    My car hooks AMAZING.

    I'm running 265-35-18's all the way around and it looks great. Personally I like the look of a 275 all the way around, but they were more money, and sometimes you'll have rubbing issues.

    In a 17 you'd be looking at 255's or 275's. You can run smaller or larger, but those seem to fit the best, and look the best.

    My 89 use to be stock except for gears, exhaust, and a vortech. It went 11.9 on slicks, and would have probably put down about 330-350 if I ever would have dynoed it. Anyway, with 225 gaterbacks on 10 holes, I could blow them away in 1st or 2nd, and break them loose in 3rd. With 275 nitto 555Rs, I had to try to break them loose. I loved those tires. I hear the MT Drags hook even better, so I can image how those would be.

    Agreed. In five months on the street I toasted a stock differencial with Nitto DR's on my GT, 245/50's. Those tires were awesome. With normal tires I could launch in second and spin them hard, and keep them burning into third; but with the 555DR's Launching in first I was lucky to chirp second. Hook like mad, corner like a road course tire, and no worse in the rain than any other tire I've used. According to my Gtech they shaved .5 off my 1/4 too, over the Nitto 450 Extremes I used to run.

    With my old factory Cobra rims I had Nitto DR 275/40/17. They cleared my lowered car and hooked pretty good.

    I got the Toyo TR1 245/40/18 and 275/35/18. Wish I would have gone with a 285 on rear. Theres room and with 9.5" rims the tire looks a little bit small. O well Im sure Ill burn them off next summer.
