    Tires

    Just bought M/T ETs 275/40/17 Put them on, and bad rubbing. I had to shave my fenders immediately. Friend has Nittos and did not have to. But the first time I launched my car I dont know how I ever got by without them! Comments on your tires, and what kind?

    I REALLY want a set of nitto 555 315/35/18s for my goat.....may go wider if I can afford them after I do a few more upgrades (driveshaft, stubs, rear cover)

    Yokohama S.Drives in 235/40/17 on the front and 245/45/17 on the back. LOVE them, fantastic handling. I can actually feel the solid center strips on the front end pulling when I do hard turns, and the rears provide leagues of grip over the stock BFG's.
    Anyone without a gun and a knife and a handkerchief and a chapstick get the F%$# out of here!

    They are a little over priced but the Toyo 888's work really well. The nitto 555dr's are the best bang for the buck. The bfg dr's wear out to quick

    the MT drag radial on a stock wheel tire 275/45/17 works no rubbing,now a diffrent wheel say a 9.5 rear with a 7.5 BS you will need to trim fender lips and use a BFH inside to beat the spot it rubs,now same size nittos need not cut or hammer,I have a set of 9.5 rears use nittos all the time on the street,here is a video of what my car just done with them nittos,10.8 and 131.50mph. 1.75660ft
