    Ive been banging my head on the computer screen for a few months now.. Im some what happy with the M/T 305/35 20's all though they dont do as good of a job as I thought they would with the name Micky thompson on them they serve their purpose. Now here is my thing im on full BMR suspension I want a rim and tire that is close to 27" tall and look some what factory here is what im looking at

    AMR GT500 replicas in 18-10 will a M&H 325/30/18 fit or the 275/40 18 be enough tire for 600hp

    Thanks guys

    The 20" MT's hook hard on a 10.5" rim at 15psi...

    I have a set of M&H 325/40/18's... They run narrow & look best on a 10.5 to 11" rim, but you could probably get by with a 10" rim.

    The M&H's are narrower then my 315 NT05's

    Sounds like you have been through your fair share of tires.. it's hard finding a 27+ tall tire any way you spin it, it's about 1000 for rear tires and wheels and not go with a small diameter wheel

    I've got 2011 SVT GT500 20 9.5 they have street comps on them street tires.... I want a set of weekend/drag wheels that look stock that's why I was looking at the AMR wheels 18-10 and thinking of the 325/40 18 but didn't know if they would clear. I'm lowered with BMR springs. I was also thinking BIGS & LITTLE'S but just don't want to be switching all the time.

    Your from Michigan... Drop your rear rims off at Weldcraft wheels & have them widened to 10.5"... Then run the 20" MT's or Nitto NT05r's.

    I have 18's right now, but I think 19's or 20's look better with our big wheel well... MT is coming out with a 305/40/18 (27.5") when they switch over to the new SS line, but they won't be out till June...

    The 305/35/20 nt555R is what I am running right now and these are a good DR for daily driving, not as sticky as the nt05R but it will last a bit longer. Definitely sticky compared to a street tire. You might want a wider rim though.

    I might wait for the 305/40 18... then I can just buy the 18-10's from A/M. I put about 200 miles a week on my car so DD a drag radial would not last long. Scott have you tried the 325/40 18 M&H do they look good they are a 28" tall tire right?

    I have a pair in my possession, I'm hoping to get mounted soon. I'll find out if they hook next weekend... I like a 28" to 28.5" tall tire. MT makes a 305/45/18 that hooks good. My 11" rims are a little too wide for that tire, but they fit great on a 10" rim
