Default What rear tire

What rear tire should I go with for my new 10.5 cobra Rs. Just street mostly. I don't drive it more than 500 miles a year.

whatever tire you want. at less than 500 miles a year, it doesnt really matter.

Exactly my thoughts... If you do anything like tracking the car then get a nice track tire, but if it is a garage queen then why replace the tires?

If you drag race. Mickey Thompson drag radials. If you auto cross something like a Michelin pilot tire. If you take it out of the garage on sunny days just buy a bunch of armor all and keep whatever is on there now.

because right now I have nitto 275s 555s on the rear, I was going to put them on the front and not run them on a 10.5 rim.
