So I'm ready to go bigger I'm still running on the 225s that came on my manual 91 notchback with a 3.73. I have some 15x10 wheels already so I'm looking to get some input on which tires will be good for street use and still will hold up at the strip. I only go once in a while with friends. I would like to go with a 295/50R15 tire so I found some BF Goodrich Radial T/A but was curious about Nitto 555R 275/50R15. Which one would be better for street and some track? Or any other tire suggestion will be appreciated.

I don't think that 295 will fit. The section width is 11.6.
I ran a set of hoosier 28x11.5,claimed section width is 11.2
(probably wider) and i had to do a LOT of BFH work on the
inner,and cut the lip.
At moderate power levels the Nitto 555 works well.

Yeah I'm waiting till Friday to order some 255/50/16's for the rear and I'm hoping it will be enough.
How much power are you making? Suspension details? And planned usuage? For a street car those will be plenty of tire. Track...not easy to get good results,especially with a manual trans

Not really sure on how much power I'm running picked up the car 6 months ago and have been slowly upgrading things. But has upgraded rear control arms and lowering springs. Mainly a street car with some trips to the track. I'm just tired of not getting any traction till 3rd gear.
