Weekend stickies needed.

I'm looking for a tire/wheel combo for weekend drag racing.
Can be stock wheels or aftermarket.
is there a good sticky tire that will for the stock rear for the 2010?
no street, just race.
Thanks in advance.

Drag radials are a good start.

The ONLY Drag Radial that will "properly" fit the stock 20x9 wheel is the Nitto NT555R (275/40R20). All others are too wide for a 9" wheel.

If you want to buy aftermarket wheels....then only your budget will limit you. There are some fairly budget-friendly 18" options available.

How good of 60 foot time has anyone been able to get consistently with the Nitto NT 555R 275/40 20 ? Everything I have heard is that it doesn't work very well, but maybe thats just the guys with 500+ RWHP. If you can get 2.1's in 60 foot times from a bolt on LS3 with PZERO's, should I expect to be able to get 1.8's with the NT 555's?

I've never used them myself, but FWIW, I've heard they need a LOT of heat (i.e. big burn out) to be effective. They're sort of a "hybrid", half street-tire and half drag radial. Stickier than a normal street radials, but not quite as good as a full-time (M/T, M&H, or NT05R) drag radial. But they get a lot more mileage out of them than the full-time drag radials. I've gotten a 2.03 60' on 20" Continental DWS's, I would certainly hope a 1.8 would be achievable with the NT555's.
