    What Tires On A 16" Wheel?

    I'd like to keep the stock look to the car(sleeper), but finding a WIDE, high-performance or even a drag radial for a 16' wheel is impossible! Does anyone here run a 16' wheel? If so, what tires?
    Please Note: Only looking for a sticky, wide tire. Has to be able to handle the power. Thanks ahead!

    BF goodrich also has drag radials in 255-50-16. They stick like a mother but wear pretty quick. Also, never, and I repeat NEVER, try to drive faster than ~40 mph in the rain.

    That's what I thought, nothing wider than 255. Well, those are my best options.
    Thanks, guys!
