Hey guys im looking into getting some MT ET drag tires, im currently running a MT ET street radial in a 275/60r15... I wanted to stay as close as i could to that same size, as of now the car does not rub unless there are a couple of people sitting in the back :rlaugh: ... Anyways what size slick would this be? I was thinking this Mickey Thompson 3758 - Mickey Thompson ET Street Tires Thanks guys

I ordered some 28x10.5's MT's from Summit so they should be here soon. Hopefully they will fit without having to beat in the wheel well to much.

Well i have hoosier drag radials on the car right now and i am going to keep them for daily driving. But i cant for the life of me get it to hook with them. Also i rarely ever drive in the rain so that isnt that big of a deal.

Nice car. Should have nooo problem turning those 28s, and they look badass haha. The slicks should hook much better when hot than the drs on a stick car. Ever had it to the track?

No i have never taken it to the track, i was trying to get it to hook a little better on the street before i went to the track since its a hour away :mad: ... Anyways i just put the strange ajustable shocks on the rear last night and they helped out a good bit. Im getting the slicks mounted probably thursday so i believe i will be ready then.

Hey guys i got them on today, i had to do quite a bit of beating to the metal rim that hold the sideskirt on. But once that was done i was good to go. I just drove it up the road and tried a couple small launches without a burnout and man i know just like that they hook almost twice as good as a pair of heated radials... I will try and get some pics up tonight but right now im to tired...

Its kinda hard to explain online. Anyway the side skirt that has the air hole in it, right below the door. Well that part wraps around and has two screws in the wheel well, i had to take it off and beat the metal rim it connects to in. Then put it back in place and drill two new holes. That was it...
