I only have 1 wheel/tire finished, that's why I'm buying more tires to mount on these wheels. When I have them all done I'm entering in COTM.
Thinking 40 sidewall after forgetting about lowering....don't want to rub

I only know one way to bowl..
That's by throwing the fucker down the lane till pins fly to other lanes,
or the mechanisms behind the alley break and we have to switch lanes..

I'm going to go with a 40 or 35 because after googling 18" wheel with 305/45 I'm looking at maybe a 1/5 of a in clearance on stock height without modding to make it fit

Not too shabby. Best I cut with them was 1.906 and that was dumping the clutch at 4200RPM. I also already had 4.11 gears then as well. Never was able to get anything below that in about a dozen attempts. Most were 1.93 to 1.97, which is about what I got with street tires. I was disappointed in their performance at the track. However, they are great street tires for a DR.

Best I've cut on street tires was 2.2 with about 30 launches varying the RPM's and clutch everytime. I'd be super happy with a 1.9 or better

The Nitto 555r Drag Radial
07-29-2012, 04:59 PM #56
If I remember right, I've gotten a 2.06 on the OEM Goodyears with my car when I had the 3.42 gears in it.

wow! thanks 35th.. i was about to get them for my car but, if they suck that bad i'll pay the extra for the NT05r's
07-29-2012, 05:32 PM #58
i correct myself! not that they suck just would've expected more..

No drag radial is going to be great at the track. You need either an ET Street or Slick.
I have heard that the NT05r is an awesome tire though. Chris just got them and loves them.
Don't get me wrong, the Nitto 555r DR grips really well on the street. I have about 12K miles on mine now and they still hook relatively well. When they were new, they dead hooked in 1st from a roll.
