    I had a blow out on the highway a few days ago and I blew three of my tires after the crash. Now I am getting new tires I was wondering what are the best tires for the track and are still good on the street. I want great traction.

    Nitto tries are the best for the track and street...but my Firehawk are great around coners and i i am going on my 3rd year with the same set with around 25k and thats a big plus

    I like my bfg's they grip real well & look pretty cool too.
    Nitto's aren't bad either they just don't make a 295/35/18 drag radial. BFG does............

    Did you crach pretty bad? I just got some Kumho Ecsta Supra 712, i have no complaints with them right now, i really havent tried to race with them yet. My friend in his LT1 has Yokohama AVS ES 100 and he likes those alot. If you want something thats going to be good for the track your best bet would be to by some drag radials.

    Yeah my crash was pretty bad. I did a 360 on the highway. My roommate was a alseep at the time and he woke up when we were going backwards. It was kind of funny. I liked the Kuhmo until then. I want drag radials now.

    Get the regular 555's on the front in a 255/40/17 or a 275/40/17 and get 555R's 315/35/17's on the back. It will look killer and won't rub. The nitto's will last you about 15k if you're nice. The front's will last way longer than the backs :D
