For what it's worth, I ended up going with the Nitto NT05 in 295/35/18 and 265/35/18 (same sizes I'm running now). As I said, I don't really get the car out in the rain, nor is it driven in the...

I appreciate the input, but I already have them, so might as well put them in. A little extra insurance never hurt, right?

I thought I had found a step-by-step thread on installing the torque box reinforcements on this site somewhere, but I can't find it now. Anyone know where it is?

Sorry, I forgot to mention I plan to make a couple trips to the strip per year.

This thing doesn't get driven in the rain or in the freezing cold, so that's kind of a non-issue. Also, I'm looking...

Continential ExtremeContact DW or Drag Radials?

In the next month or so I will be getting a new set of tires for my '04 GT (mods in signature). The car had Nitto Invos on it when I got it, 295/35/18 in the rear 265/35 in the front. The tread was...

Other than your usual things with any car, one thing I could think to check if you can is the torque boxes. The condition of the torque boxes can tell you a lot about how the car was driven.

I'll give the hoses a shot. The reason I'm just a bit skeptical on the hoses is that my experience with my mom's car was that when that hose was bad the caliper REALLY drug.

Suppose hoses are the next step then. Thanks for confirming. I'm not one to throw parts at a problem.

This is true. Plus you have to consider are you getting a catted or o/r midpipe? X or H? The midpipe can have almost the same effect on sound as mufflers.

There is a piston side pad and a "not piston side" (for lack of a better term) pad.

Let's compromise, 18x10 in the rear with 295/35 tires lol. I might be a little biased because that's what I run. In the future I do plan on getting a dedicated drag rear wheel/tire setup to swap out...
