    Can't wait to get these tires on and hit the track. Some nice cool Spring air and I should get my 10 second pass.

    I will run these daily as well.

    Buddy, are you planning on running Martin Dragway?

    By the smile I am guessing you are being facetious. Hey if Johnny can use them to run 10's I think they are the right tire!

    You'll really like the NT555r Nitto tire. It's a night and day difference over the factory radials. Are you 6 speed or auto?

    Nice. I can't decide on doing it that way or getting a separate set of rear wheels (wider 10"). If I do that I can put 315/35/20's. I really want to get the Nitto NT05R's. Heard a better true drag tire than the 555R's. Only put them on a few times a year when going to the track.

    I was able to do a four second zero to sixty today with those tires. We just tried a couple of runs in first gear starts. It is 45 over here.
