    Thats what I am about to do. Set them at 32 PSI and go out and try again. Maybe 35. Thanks.

    I ran those tires at 25 PSI on the street...and that is a little high.
    Ran them at 16PSI on the track.
    Granted, mine were the same height but on a smaller wheel.


    Also, my MT's hooked roughly the same on the street aired up as my Nitto DR's do.
    Just wait till you warm them.

    Thats what I thought.

    So you think I should go to 30 PSI at least??? Can I drive these tires as a DD? Including Highway? No rain planned but being able to drive it to work would be nice. Or is this out of the question with the MT?

    I cant wait to get'em warm. How much of a burnout is required to really get them warm? A few seconds? I realized yesterday I am a total rookie noob with DR!

    Well...those are cheater slicks basicly. Cars have run 8's on them.
    4-5 seconds worked pretty well for me.

    If you get caught in rain, be careful.
    Then can be daily driven, but they wear FAST! Highway should be fine...might just float a little.


    I would fill to 25-26 PSI for street.

    Well, I lowered the PSI to 29 PSI and went for a cruise today.

    It completely changed the car. It still swayed slightly at 75/80... but NOTHING like it was when it was 44 and 46 PSI!!!!

    I launched at 3500 RPM after my tires were semi warm... ( did a burn out from 4500 RPM for about 20 feet... ON ACCIDENT!!! )

    and the car dead hooked. It bogged the engine down for about 2 seconds, then it took off at WOT. I have never felt a launch like that before! Great tires, but they are going to wear insanely fast. I can not DD these. I am looking for a pair (2) of WS6 Polished Aluminum rims so I can mount my BFG G-force's and put them back on the car for street driving.

    Glad you like those tires. Once the rear end is done in my car, I am going to give those a try.

    I really like the hook they gave me.

    Luos wasnt kidding when he said "enjoy not spinning now"

    It slightly bogs my engine down with a loud !CHIRP! and then takes of like a bat outta hell at roughly 3500 RPM dump with pretty damn warm tires on the street.

    I would recommend them... especially if you arnt planning on running them full time on the street. Seems to me they will wear very fast. I might buy 2 rims from a member here and mount my BFG's and run them. Good luck with your rear end build.... what are you doing/planning???

    You guys think 150 PLUS shipping for two 2002 ws6 wheels is a good deal?

    I would be all over it without shipping costs!

    Don't know right now. Between 9", 12 bolt, Dana 60. I heard the 9" is the lightest but not the most efficent. The Dana 60 is the heavest but most efficent. And the 12 bolt is pretty much right in the middle. But I have heard the 12 bolt is the weakest of the three. Don't know if all that is correct, but that is what I have heard.

    The sticky in the drive-train forum taught me alot. The 9" is the strongest to my knowledge... but it is a major power robber. I wouldn't mind that for the added security.

    If I were you... I would def. get the 9" and not look back.

    Thats what I was thinking, but I am stuck on gears. I was thinking 3.08's or 2.73's. My total goal for my car is a 468 ci LSX block with H/C/ and maybe a turbo with just 4 or 5 lbs of boost. So lower gearing would help drasticly. 1st running out at 60-65mph. See ya ZR1 or Z06. But with my power right now, those gear ratios wouldn't help I don't think.

    Yea, those gears would hurt you without that setup you are talking about.

    I have 3.73's... they are alright... I might have went with 4.10 / .11's.
