Nt555r are great but I've never used them past 600whp, they were holding fine at those levels.

No problem Buddy! I'm trying to get car done hopefully in a couple months maybe will get some friendly runs!

toyo r888. great tire 315/30/20..or a 285/35/20. on a 11 that should not stretch. i run 295/25/20 on my 12s and its stretched. but look up the r888. great street tire and a true street tire not a drag radial that tmf said. my personal experience with drag radials on the street suck. i mean they hook and all but wear so fast. i used nitto 555 and going to the bfg radial was a huge improvement. my friend makes 700 wheel in his turbo cls and runs r888. hooks 2nd no problem

seems that the corvette guys are using the r888 also...

quote from forum

People are having great results with the Toyo R888. The Nitto 555RII are also another good option as well. If you were looking for a tire that hooks, and your car would never see rain, then MT's all the way.
