Michelin Pilot super sport 285/35-20" front and 315/35-20" on the rears

These tires can handle more load than the O.E. tires, but its not directional like Good Year

GY thread wear is 220
Michelin wear is 300

So it does last longer as well.

But again for ~700 RWHP i would actually use MT like I said before, the MT even with 305 width is still more sticky than Michelins.

The nitto comes in 315 which I like, but the tread looks good on the MT. I wished the MT come in a 315....ugh

I bought the nitto NT05r drag radials (315/35R20) won't know if they are any good for a couple of month yet!! I only drive the car in good weather and take it to the track on the odd weekend. I will probably put nitto 555R's on the front.
How much did you pay for the set?

I've run the 555r's and NT05's on a variety of cars, vettes, SRT8, SSR The 55r is a very sticky street/track DOT approved tire with good performance, low mileage and does come in matching tread drag radial. NT05 is a better general service tire with twice the mileage. both are good, smooth tires, it depends on your application.

I AM CONSIDERING 17" BOGART WHEELS. 17X10 REAR 17X5 FRONT FOR DRAG RACING ONLY. HAS ANYBODY TRIED HOOSIER DRAG RADIALS? THE REASON I AM LOOKING AT 17'S IS TO CHANGE THE REAR TIRE DIAMETER TO CHANGE THE GEAR RATIO FROM3.23(AUTO) TO 3.73 OR 4.10 WITHOUT ACTUALLY CHANGING GEARS.
GOING TO USE 20" MICHELIN PILOT SUPER SPORTS WHEN THE GOODYEAR FINALLY WEAR OUT FOR THE STREET. SINCE IT'S A CONVERTIBLE I ONLY PLAN ON A ROAD COURSE LIKE A FEW DAYS AT BONDURANT'S SCHOOL TO BETTER LEARN HOW TO DRIVE IT ON THE STREET
