Default drag radials

where can I get some drag tires and wheels? I am looking at spending the least amount of money but I want them to be good.

I don't know what fits our cars and what doesn't.

thanks

Look in either Summit Racing or Jegs Mickey Thompson street E/T come in a 17 inch size that fits our stock wheel. You cannot go smaller than 17" wheels and cannot go wider unless you go to larger diam. wheels.

you can go smaller than 17" and wider than 9", bogart makes wheels just for the 05-up mustang.i have a set on order through JPC (15X10rear 15X3.5 front)they should be here in a couple more weeks. check out JPC's website they have a pic of justin's car with the d10's from bogart. for simplicity i would stick with the stock wheels and go with bfg or m/t drag radials. they make a bunch of different sizes so you will find one thats the same dimensions as the stock tires.

so I can put wider tires on the back stock wheels, that will make a difference in time?

I mean why did Ford give us corrola tires?!?!?!?

thanks

o yea, will they be street legal? if not is it a pain to have tires taken on and off the rims to switch?

yeah if they help you hook up better. it will allow you to launch harder. a bigger tire is not always the answer though. it adds weight and rolling resistance so you really want to go with the smallest tire you can within reason of course. i've seen cars that were backhalved and slowed up due to turning those big a$$ slicks when they didn't need them. the bfg's seem like they would be more streetable than the mickey's but the m/t's are probably much better traction wise.

I know this might be a pian but I really don't know what to look for as far as all the sizes go. if someone could explain what numbers to look for I would appreciate it, so I can put em on my stock rims.

Something that would be safe for the street and help drag racing would be amazing.

thanks
