They're too short (in my opinion), only 25.5" diameter....it would look weird!!!

Im no worried about looks. They will only be for some drag rims.
Just wondering if anyone has used them on the track yet

The largest size tire they offer is a 275. Why not buy 555R's, MT's etc in 305 if your that serious about drag racing to need D.radials.

I just now started looking for tires and just glanced at a couple websites. I have some 555rs and also some NTO5's. I will probably go with NT05R's in a 285.
Ive never used MT's before so maybe i need to give them a try

Why not just go with the Nitto 555R? I run them on my 70 Z-28 and have run an 11.8 with no traction problem. I am running 275/15's not 20's but still if you run 18's you would have no problem.

If you want to run 18's, I would recommend M&H RaceMaster

I have the 555R's in 305 45 18. You can't go wrong. They are the most "streetable" of the drag radials.
