Default Tire choices

Just got a pair of wheels for cheap so i'm looking to put some good rrag racing tires on it. I'm thinking some type of Mickeys. The wheels are 17x9.5

They will be used strictly to drive to the track with and race, return home and get swapped out.

What do you guys recommend? Thanks

If you plan to drive to the track on them and want to launch HARD I'd say ET Streets are your best bet. I think the Hoosier QTPs might hook a little harder but they are not made for highway use and would probably be more than you need anyway. Nitto drags might work but if you don't plan to drive on them full time than go with the ET Streets, then you'll have the extra traction if/when you add more power.

I love my toyos TQ drag radials but sounds like your a 6 speed and might have better luck with a bias ply tire at the track.

I can cut 2.0s on the street with my toyos lol Plus if you get your 60' to sub 2.0 your looking at 12s all day long.

What are you running now just a street tire?
