    MT ET street SS 315/35 17's on my supercharged 04 auto. Stick much better than the nitto 555's I used to have. Never drove in rain with them but my guess would be that they would suck in rain.

    Line locks for brakes will save you and help a lot.

    Mickey Thompson ET Street SS here too, 305/35/18. I was impressed with how good they stick for a thin sidewall street radial. That beign said I took the car out once when it had just started raining and the oils were first coming out of the asphalt and it wanted to loop out on me.

    Comparing the tread patterns I would think the NT05's would be worse in the rain than the MT ET Street SS.

    Also, even after a couple dry hops the tires were warmed up and sticky, didn't need to do a smoke show.

    Basically I just wanna know out of the two what one is wider and what one will hook me up more from a no burnout dig on street also I don’t go from a dig unless I’ve been drive for a little bit to get tires warm so what ever one will get me to get off the line better that’s the one I’m going with

    The width difference between 2 tire of the same size will be minuscule. Compound, tread pattern and tire pressure will be the only real factors in traction.

    You'll likely be able to try them both since they won't last more than ~10k miles, so don't overthink it and start practicing your launch.
