Hey guys so my ST kit is currently getting dialed in and was wondering what you high power guys recommend in terms of wheel setups. Been told to look in MT ET Streets, but its my daily; so first question is does anyone DD in the summer on street radials; along with any comments on doing so such as in the rain, etc. If thats a bad idea, would having a spare set of rear wheels / radials be the next best option? Any tire that would be worthwhile to daily for that power ? Thanks guys

You could run a set of toyo r888 as a daily tire, and use radials for the track.

Mine is not making 600... nor do I daily it but I run M&H Racemasters on it and cut consistent low 1.7-1.6 60 foots and they are not horrible in the rain.

I've been running MT ET Streets for little over a year now. 275/40/17's in the back on Style 68M rear wheels (8.5et50), fender slightly pulled, no rub. Had fender pulled to try and fit Koseis 8.5et40 back there but still rubbed. So can't comment for sure that 8.5et50 will work on non rolled fenders. Traction in the dry is awesome, wet roads are ok to drive on carefully but avoid standing water.

Some pics of the Style68M 8.5ET50's on 275/40/17, lots of room strut side
Been thinking about going to Forgestar F14's 17x9ET58, should only be a mm or two more tucked.
Hope these help somewhat :)

I was looking at the same wheel and wondering if u could squeeze the 10" rim back there but it doesnt look like it. At least not without a higher offset

Also, does anyone know if you can get the Forgestars in 16's?

@ninjacoupe Looks awesome! Are u happy with the nittos?
Good tire for the price. Works well and gets sticky when heated. I don't have an LSD so I keep boost dialed down in first and second. Now that the temps are over 70 here I can run 23+ in 2nd gear with DTC off completely. Even brake boosting car is an animal from a 40 roll. It'll spin a bit but it's a spin/hook where it pushes the car out pretty hard. They actually handle pretty good on turns as well. For what I use the car for they work.

Thanks for the info, helped me make up my mind. Was considering 15s and a tall drag radial

That would be good for a drag car looking to do a lot of dig racing. I'm not willing to give up on my brake size and just in general how nimble the car feels
