    Traction and 19's are two things that don't go together. Step down to at least a 17 or forget about any sort of traction. Also with your motor even Nittos Drags in 315's are gonna cut it. you will need at least a Mickey Thompson or BFG drag radial to hook.

    btw, you might have better luck w/ 285/30-19 or 275/30-19... and it would be better than 35, making the Overall Diameter very similar to the front one instead of a whole 1" taller.
