    Default 275/60/15 or 255/60/15 MT Drag Radial ?

    So Im getting the coupe back on the road. Its been sitting since 06 and I havent touched it since I bought my 03 cobra in 2007.
    I have been a member on here for a while, but never post much. I see alot of good info on here so I thought Id ask u you guys for your thoughts and input on tires.

    Im looking into getting some MT's for my coupe. Im running a 15x8 Prostar with a 5.5bs. The two tires sizes Im looking at are 275/60/15 and 255/60/15. The 275/60/15 is 28"s tall and about 11"s wide, and the 255/60/15 is 27"s tall and 10.5"s wide. I know they both fit but wanted to know what you guys think.

    Im leaning to the 255"s because Im not so sure I want such a big tire on a 8" wheel. I had a 275/50/15 on it before but it seamed a little short.

    let me know what you think and post pics of any of the two if you would.

    I went ahead and went the 275/60's. Had 275/50's before in a Nitto. Alot of difference. Car is not on the ground yet. Its on jack stands. I see that I have alot of room from the fender to the tire. About 3 inches.

    Look's like I might have to change the Eibach drag launch kit and the Mega bite's out. What your rear set up.

    Only change from stock is Southside lowers and removed quad shocks
    I had to cut some out of inner fender. Other than that it fits great
