Default Tires

I'm back.....again.....ha

Hello all,

Thanks for all of the people who have helped in the past, the project is coming along nicely.

Anyway, new question. What are the best tires to handle the 800 HP 736 ft/ib monster I now have. I will be driving this regularly on the street as well as a few times on the track (drag and circuit (if im approved))? I am looking for something that will keep me from spinning out in the dry and isn't absolutly terrible in the rain. Not much rain here, but still enough to worry. Btw I am looking to run 19x10's all around.

I've had good results with all that Cooper has to offer both on my truck and my mustang. I don't drive like you're describing, but I've never had a problem with that brand they were my first set of tires on my first car, Cooper Cobras! Currently I have Zeon RS3-A's and they have amazing grip.

I had good luck with Toyo proxes4 on my last 300 horsepower monster. Lol love the tires and have them on my 04 now. Even though having 20s on my 2005 seemed like they hooked better than my 17s I have now??? Heard the Toyo Tr1s are good performance tire too.

hmmm...handle 800hp, driving regularly on the street as well as a few times on the track...sounds like you need more of a street tire for practicality, but they won't hold if you romp on it with all that power. I like Nitto, Toyo, Goodyear, Michelin, Hankook, etc..

good luck!
