    What mods do you have done to your car?
    I noticed you said you had 2.73 gears,did you mean 3.73's I hope!?!

    Cause I have 3.23's in my 00' Z auto with some minor mods and the best I can muster is 13.3 quarters(spinning thru 1st into 2nd)probably due mostly to low profile 18" ZO6 tires.

    Just curious if something is seriously wrong with my car???

    Is there any tires for a 18"x9.5" Z06 rim that provides excellent traction?

    I want to be able to run on street treads!?!

    Nitto 555rs would be a good choice

    Are these drag radials or street tires?

    And these will fit prescribed rims?

    Ya, your gonna need traction. Last week end I ran 13.2 at 112mph. No traction what so ever. I put 370 to the wheels and should run 12s easy.

    Nitto 555's are a drag radial. And yes, they make them in sizes to fit ZO6 wheels.

    they will fit, they are drag tires made for the street.
    btw, why would you get a 2000 stall when stock is 1800?
