Default 05 mustang stock axles

Can my stock axles handle drag radials? Or slicks? What size drag radials is good for a 17 inch rims?

Yea don't see why not, however quite a few people will recommend having the tubes welded.

Size depends on your rear gear ratio. A mostly stock gt doesn't have the power to spin an axle tube or break an axle, slick or no slick.

What island are you on? I run 17` AM bullitts with 295/45 MT ET Street II drag radials. I have 250+ runs down the track and my axles are performing flawlessly. You will be fine.
