im looking for drag radials to put on my aftermarket wheels. they're 17x7s enkei j10s with 225 width yokohama avs es100s on em. i was looking around but it seems like bfg's dont have the right size that would fit and the only company i've seen with a comparable size is nitto, but their comparable size is 245 width, would this fit my rim and would it clearence the wheel space?? i was thinking 245 might be too wide??? also, i think mickey thompsons got some drag radials as well, does anyone know what they're sizes are ??

i think some dd their drag radials but not many being that drag radials dont last long. from what i know, they dont last long because they grip so well. as far as being worth the money, oh yeah. especially if u like to race w/ alot of launching. from what i've heard and some researching, bfg's and mickey thompsons grip the best but last the least long. as for nitto, the grips a little less but longevity is longer. i've heard good stuff about hoosiers as well. those are all good from what i've heard. i dont think u can lose with any drag radial. there all gonna be better than street tires.

anyone run drag radials as there DD street tire? longevity? worth it?
sorry to thread jack.

Im looking at getting some Nitto drag radials that are 245/50 R16 There saying reccomended tire size is 7-8.5 some I hoping these will fit on a set of 16x7 inch wheels I have. This is going to be a drag only set-up so does anyone think these will work?
