Just got a used set of 275 60 15 mt et radials, thinking either 15x8 5.5 backspace, or 15x10 6.5 backspace. Either weld pro stars or Jegs knock offs. Best 60ft last year was 2.0 with street tires. I want to leave hard but not tear apart things either. Suspension has eibach pro springs, Kyb shocks, tubular rear arms no quad shocks. 3.73 gears and its a 5 speed. Any info is appreciated.

I run 275 drag radials on a 8 inch rim. 10 inch is probably overkill. The welds are going to be lighter and better made. I would only buy the jegs nock offs if money is a issue. Play with your starting line rpms and tire pressure. You are only going to know what your car likes by testing it.

When I had my 95Gt i used to run, ( CAI, muffler shop catback, 4:10's, king cobra clutch ) I launched at 1600rpm, rode the clutch through 1st, hit second, third and 4th hard at 5600 RPM, I averaged 1.9-2.1 60ft and 13.80's right around 100-101mph, that was with a 275/40/70 Sumitomo HTR tire at 30psi in the back. just a point of reference.
