Drag radials?

Anyone have any information on where to get some decent drag radials that won't break the bank?

I think one of the best drag radials that could still be used on the street are Nitto NT555R. I've seen some people run them on 18" C6 Z06 wheels (front). The NT555R's are also available in a 20" size, so you could use them on your stock wheels.

I had people telling my that the 18 inch vette drag radials were cheap, easy to find, and good for drag racing which is what I need them for. Idk what kind of tires those are....maybe those are what you're talking about?

The 18" Z06 wheels are available in OEM form or reproductions. Ebay usually has alot of them. Here is a reproduction company example:

Here are the Nitto tires I'm talking about:

Nittos will hook just fine. There the best option if you drive to the track. As you increase your power level look at the hoosiers or et streets.

I will agree they are better than a stock tire but they still spin. I am not sure what your definition of "just fine" is but I have had Nittos, BFGs, and MT ET Streets and Street Radials on my street cars and Nittos are terrible for good 60 fts.

With a MT you can dump the clutch at 6 grand if you want and they will hook and that is with 850 HP in my Z06....

I have had Nitto 555Rs with 400 HP that don't hook.... To me, a 1.8 or 1.9 60 ft isn't even worth driving to the track. A stock powered car will get a 1.65 60 ft when it hooks so anything less is less than an ideal run, why bother? Because going in a straight line in 13.5 seconds is "fun?"

I race NHRA and IHRA Super Stock, race shifter karts, own some very high HP cars, tune stock cars and trucks as well as powerful ones.... I don't know what your background is besides having a supercharger on a Camaro but encouraging people to spend good money on tires to take to the track that simply do not have great traction is a horrible recommendation.

Why not just use what works best the first time??? The guy didn't say he wants a daily driver tire that works better than stock at the drag strip. he asked where he can get some decent drag radials. Key word is decent. Decent starts at BFG. Nittos are hardly decent (for the strip).

OP, if you are looking for something to use at the strip (and drive to and from the strip) I recommend Mickey Thompsons all day long. If you are looking for something you can put on your car without swapping them out, BFGs are better than Nittos but either will work.

If you go with MT, keep in mind radials are great for an automatic but if you have a stick, I only use ET Streets (non-radials). The sidewall takes the hit of the stick much better, radials hop and break parts....

Here is a clip of my old Z06 on ET Streets (non radials). Headers and a 100 dry shot only (and Pfadt coilovers on road course mode, lol):

Nitto 555R
305/45/R18 Nittos hook...case closed. They may not have worked for you. I've run hoosiers/M/T/Nitto. The hoosiers are the most consistent of the three. I saw no increase in 6o times with nitto 555r/nt05r vs the M/T's. The hoosiers seem to be the superior drag radials on our platform.

I would not say case closed based on that, lol. You have a lot of HP to be able to even spin to a 1.56. If my race car spins it turns a 1.39, does that mean it hooked? No.

There are 100 examples of "nittos suck" for every example like yours.

However, there are good reviews on the NT05r.

BTW, have you tried a MT on your car (non-radial)? You may find even faster times. Unless you launched as hard as possible with no spin, there is more there.

BTW, what 1/4 mile time did that result in?

edit: I see you ninja edited. I agree, Hoosiers are also a good option. They are an even more dedicated tire than the MT, IMO.

Can you read? I said I saw no improvement in 60 times with the M/T. Another know it all internet hero.

Yes, I can, can you? I acknowledged your ninja edit, which you chose not to read, I chose not to delete anything from mine. Lol, who can't read? Now you're just being an ass.

I've made my recommendation. I won't call you any names. And I'm no hero. Just smarter than you are, I see you take offense to it. I understand. It must be difficult to be you. Maybe one day I can understand the pain you suffered in your life. Probably not though. Now, go get Superman, comic boy. I liked that movie when I was like 5.

Ninja edit? COOL STORY BRO.

The thread is about drag radials. I sure the OP in interested in someone with real world experience with these tires on a 5th gen not some internet super racer with a garage queen...

First, my race car is not a garage queen and my camaro is my daily, lol. What garage queen do I own? Are you now just going to throw odd things to say out there? What garage queen are you talking about, seriously? Are you on something?

Second, do you know what a ninja edit is? It means you clicked edit to add more info moments before I clicked reply. Had I clicked Quote, it would have read differently than your final post.

Cool story bro, lol.... I can see you have no ability to correlate appropriate internet memes and comeback lines to their appropriate comments or statements. I would have had to tell a story to get a "cool story bro."

You are highly entertaining. What random and unaccounted for statement will you make next?

As I have already stated, I have experience with all of the tires in question. Why are you making asinine statements? Completely false....

OP does not drive a race car moron. It's not a Z06 either. Your experience is as vast as your eagerness to prove your intelligence (or lack thereof) in a thread about tires. Dude your tool level is near EPIC proportions.

Whatever man. The 5th gen is a car, just like any other. I see you are one of "those people" who think it's something it isn't. Also, you started out by quoting me, not the other way around. You could have simply stated your opinion and we could have both moved on. Obviously you think you are something you are not as well. Don't let your pride get the best of you. I was trying to be nice and somewhat agreeable earlier and you just decided to be a douche. Be who you are. Later.

You guys are bickering over tires

Thanks for the info both of you. I will definitely check everything out.

Any chance you guys could link me to something since you probably have a better idea of what I need.

I will be putting them on the rear specifically for drags. When I am done I will be ptuuing the pirellis back on.

I know, I feel ashamed. if you have a 6 speed then I recommend bias ply Mickey Thompson et streets, biggest is 17 inch though. otherwise, et street radials in your size, Hoosiers or lex likes nittos....

I have run 1.6x 60' times on a Nitto DR many times. They were 05s as opposed to 555 but still a decent street/strip tire. In case you didn't know.....you are kind of full of yourself dude.

He can't get a 17" unless he's willing to pay $600+ per wheel. Most likely he will be getting 18's because you can get a vette wheel for next to nothing. I went into the 10's on an 18" M & H drag radial. 1.60 60's. It was a nice tire.

Forget these two bozos...I think they might be in love.

If you are going to use them for a strip only application and want to run your regular radials on the street then I would definitely go ET streets. They hook the best but are a terrible tire out on the street...any rain will put you in the ditch unless you slow down to a crawl and they won't wear very well.....but if you are willing to change them over to race then they hook the best.

Ninja edit: Jamie is right...go with 18s as the wheel choices are dirt cheap. Most people use Corvette wheels.

Ninja edit #2: If you are going to run your regular radials in the front then think twice about running the bias ply version of ET Streets.....mixing radials and bias can give you a squirrely ride on the big end. Many have done it, but be prepared if that's the route you go.

Good luck.
