    I had a set of the 305/35/20 ET Streets come in today, they look a lot bigger than the Nittos 315's we are using, the tread design changed a bit from the ET Street to the SS version..., I wish the NT05R's came in a 305 as I like the contact patch better.

    I'm going to run the ET Street R or ET Street SS for my daily driving and the Pro Drag Radial for the strip.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure the pro drag radial is only avail in 15" rim size ?

    Interesting there is a 275 40 20 in the SS. That line looks much like the original ET radial. If the SS hooks like the old ET tire it would be a easy direct replacement for stock rim sizes. You don't need to drag anymore tire down the track than you need to get traction.

    These can be a game changer and M/T makes a great product but consider what may happen when you hook up that good (see driveshaft post )

    Has anyone thought about getting 10" rims to mount the 305s? I will be shopping to look for a 10" rim that looks close to the stock rims. I have to make sure it will not rub the inside of the wheel well.

    20x10 with 24mm offset will work perfect Outide of rim will be same as stock hard part is finding the 5x115 bolt pattern so if you find a 20x10 with 5x115 bolt pattern and 24mm offset you will be good to go.

    So do the 305/35/20 fit the stock 9.5 '' rim.

    Yes you can put them on stock wheels but they need a least a 10" to put most of the tire down. 11" is optimum.
    You might as well buy a 275 if you are using 9.5 rim. That's all that's going to be on the ground.
