After only being able to run a 13.15 @115 with 2.3x 60ft's on Nitto 450's, I've decided I need to get new tires ASAP, what do you guys recomend? I would like to get something that's under $140 a tire...
Seattle's right about the 15" Nittos. I've made a few passes with the 205/45/15s before. The diameter is smaller that the 14s, which *should* equate to a better final drive ratio.
I went through the lights at an indicated +3mph over the 205/55/14s, and indicated 102mph versus my normal (at the time) 99mph trap speeds.
BFGoodrich has their drag radial, and it's in an interesting 225mm width for the 14s. Not sure of the aspect ration. If it could be stuffed on a Classic stock rim, then I might go that route. It has the same diameter as the Nittos, at 22".
Do you guys have problems with wheel hop on these drag radials? Launching on my MT slicks was like launching on pillows, smooth as hell. I've heard the drag radials will cause some really bad hop. Any input?
