    I was thinkin of nittos 555 but they aint got my size for the rear , So I will probably get nittos 555R.......I was looking at bf goodrich g-force T/A radials as well but on the rear tire, the 315, the rim size says 11-12" so I was wonderin if it would fit in my 10.5" rim ? correct me if Im wrong. So what do you guys got?

    I had those G force tires on the front of my cobra when I had my bullitts on it :) they are a good tire and not expensive. Right now I have a new tire called Nexun's ( I think that's how its spelled ) on the front and of couse my BFG Drag radials out back. However I'm like you, I am going to be trying the nitto ( drag radials ) very soon because my BFG's are just about to be retired.

    Goodyear Eagle GSD3's, they are very sticky and insanely good in the rain....light years ahead of the Nitto's i had before these.

    yeah
    as far as bang for the buck
    their pretty awesome, not really that expensive
    and have the same tread patterns as tires much more
    expensive than they are.

    I have the 315 BFG drag radials on a 10.5 in. rim. They fit just right, and look bad ass by the way.

    I have BfGoodrich G-Force TA KDW new tread. They look awesome and perform really well, especially in the rain. I have worked in a tire shop for three years(finally got one more month left) and will say to stay away from goodyear. The GSD3 is very prone to spliting belts. Goodyears quality has went down hill in the past 10 years. They are making horrible stuff now. I have not been a big fan of the nitto tires because they just dont seem to hook for a drag radial(they do rate them at 14k miles though under normal driving). In the bfgoodrich kdw line i do recommend the new tread. I dont care for the old tread kdw. The drag radials i have heard good out of. My sizes are 275/35zr18 on the back and 245/40zr18 on the front which are mounted on 18x9 inch rims. I have had Michelin Pilot Sports and Bridgestone Pole Position S-03 also. The new tread BfGoodrich is definately a better tire in every aspect.
