The thing I noticed with your post is you wrote your running a Nitto NT05R on stock rims. That tells me your using a 315/35R20 on a 9" rim. Definitely not recommended. Plus I doubt the contact patch...

G8 GT heads should be L99/L92 heads or LS3 heads with L99/L92 valves and valve springs. These should be a direct replacement for a L99 automatic Trans 5th gen Camaro.

G8 GXP heads are LS3 heads....

I think it would have been better for GM and buyers if they used a LT1 instead of developing a new LF4. I think it would have been cheaper for everyone. Weight would have been a little less as well...

The 11.4 done by the stock C7 A6 was -1500 DA. Also, from what I remember TRW's set up was super mild and inexpensive. I think he was using a 18" drag radial and his converter was a super simple and...

Stock A6 C7 has run 11.4x

Full bolt on 5th gen SS's have run 11.4x.
No way does a 5th gen need a stroker and/or 575-600RWHP to run mid 11's. Bottom end doesn't need to...

To answer the OP's original question on tires I would do 305/45R18 or 325/45R17 in a MT or M & H drag radial. So long as you don't run into any weather I wouldn't have any problems with driving...

Wow that's really impressive for a stock converter. What gears and tire size are you using? How much weight have you removed from the car?
