Woah!! That's the sheeet! The height will increase our gear multiplication which should make us run faster ET's. Along with the hook!

I think I might have ta try me some of those!

Thanks for the info, Matt. You are always on top of this stuff.

They're much lower profile than normal ET streets. So they won't have the same hook. But they'll DEFINATELY out hook the drag radials. Will the half shafts break? Good question. We'll see. :shocked

Ok....will these work on our rims? How much wider are they than the 315 nittos I have on there now?

I dont think the half shafts will not have a prob as long as you come out riding the clutch and keep the initial bang of the launch to a minimum.Then get on her big time in the rest of the gears. Thats my plan anyway :rolleyes:

Harry,
The stuff is so new, nobody seems to have spec's, but if you go by what the 16x11.5 spec's are, then it should be no problem. On the rim 11.5 side wall to side wall, 9.7" tread.

Will these tires standup to the street. I only put a few thousand miles a year on the Cobra so wear is not as much an issue. I don't want the tire to blow out at high speeds.
