Default which d/r's to get?

Well im going to order a set of 17x10.5 deep dish black bullitt rims....i wanted to know what would be the best drag radials to throw on there for my 100 shot of nitrous...

im looking for 315/35/17 size tires and was wondering if Nittos would do the trick or would they still break lose and i should go with something stickier like M/T....the only problem is i couldnt find the M/T ET streets in that tire size....any help would be great

also, im looking to pay give or take $200 tops for each tire...thanks

dude with 315's you wont need to worry about grip with the nittos, youll have so much sticky on the ground, you'll do really good.

BFGs for Track Use
Nittos For Street Use

If you go to track a lot get BFGs cuz they hook better then Nittos, but Nittos have longer tread life.

MT's do not come in that size.

For street use with the car seeing some track use get the Nittos. When my car was a daily driver and saw the track, I got around 12k miles out of them.

Just slow it down a bit in the rain.

I'd say nitto's if they're your only set of rims and it's your daily driver. If not, i'd get bfg's or mickey thompson's.

im just curious, doesnt the posting of adding stickers to add hp get a little old after the 1000000000th time its been heard....its almost getting utterly annoying to read....especially when you just say it and it doesnt help the topic at all

for everyone else though, thanks for your help
