Do you think these M/T will fit on my 17 x 8 wheels?

    I know Nitto's DR's will fit ok on a 17x8 wheel since they tend to run a little skinnier than other brands. Has anyone here ever mounted:

    MICKEY THOMPSON ET STREET DRAG RADIAL DOT TIRE 275/40-17 26" TALL
    to a 17x8 wheel? Will there be too much bulge?

    I'm just looking for a better hooking tire at the track and it's between the MT and BFG..
    I am aware that the tread life on the MT are crap but these will be used just for the track.

    thanks
