    I think you will see most are running 305 / 35 / 20.. either Mickey Thompson et 2, or nitto 555r

    MT or Nittos seem to be the choice of the masses. Nittos are a little cheaper.

    Nittos you can run everyday, not bad in the wet either. Mickeys probably stick better at the strip but I like driving my Nittos daily, going to the track dropping the psi, running 10's, airing up and going home.

    My MT's never come off the car. But this car is not my daily driver. The car is alot safer with the drag radials on than not. There is a reason they are called "stickey mickeys".

    I also thinking of drag radials for every day usage. I guess the 305's will require new rims?

    What rims are people getting and what is the final cost of DR's + rims?
    I use the car for every day, but only use it 2 miles/day, so if I get caught in the rain, it should be no problem

    How many miles on average do you get out of the Nittos?

    I daily drive my car and don't want to burn up expensive Nittos in 5k miles.

    BTW what do you all think the life expectancy are of the stock rubbers? I was able to massage about 20k miles out of my 392 SRT factory rubbers. Doubt the stock rubbers will survive that long in this one. I have the all season tires.

    I just ordered the Bravado Tribute (18 x 10 w/ 20 mm off set, part no. TTB0515205) wheels and the MT Street II (Part no. 900000024661) from Summit, they will arrive about the first week of June. This is a Drag Strip only set of rear wheels and tires for me. They will not see many road miles.........

    I was looking at them tonight. Glad they are coming off tomorrow. About 2000 street miles. Hope they have two drag days, one for sure. I have only let em roast through the gears a couple of times. But their purpose was to let me get a good feel for the car and let it get a grip.

    Also, will these require you to have to modify the rear sway bar?
    Very interested in this set up.
