    I am looking at putting some 315/35/20 Nitto 05R DR's on my stock Brass Monkey wheels or 305/35/20 Nitto 555r DR's. I checked the stock height of tire and the 315s are almost exactly the same maybe a tenth of an inch off. Can these 315's be mounted on stock 9.5 inch rim without issues and will they clear the wheel wells. I am gonna keep the stock pirelli 275's on front for now. My first choice is the 315's if I can do it if not the 555r. Thanks for everyone's input.

    Everyone I know including myself are running the 305/35/20 Nitto 555r DR' on the rear. The 315 are to much for your stock wheel. Do a search here for info.

    Not yet but, my car is not a track car, well not yet. I hated spinning at the lights from block to block. I live to beat Fords, chebbies and all comers.

    Understood but, I've had some exciting launches thus far and no wheel hop but more importantly no loses. ;)

    Those stock tires would go into wheel spin with a WOT at 45/50 mph. They are now resting in the garage. ;)

    what good is having a larger tire on the rim if it isnt making any more contact w/ the ground...the 305's are bulged already...all it would do is bow out more....not sure if there would be any advantage even at 18lbs at the drag strip...

    Well, from my experience, it makes a considerable difference. Roll on or hard fixed launches are much better.

    Most guys run the 305. You should really have it on a 10 or 10.5 wheel for a good fitment. It makes a world of difference.
