The car must stay on tires that grip well on the road in all conditions
Ya we are trying to get him down to 10.9 but with rules and if you do that I'll need to up my game. My [email protected]
can't compete. I'll have to go twin turbo and the girlfriend will leave my crazy ass. I have a twin turbo now that I think will run in the low 13's and with a few boost mods, intakes and downpipes and tuning they've gotten into the low 11's. BMW 535i station wagon (3.0 6 cylinder 7200 RPM engine) for gods sake. Soccer mom hauler. Not a SUV. I've got the Tahoe for my SUV, didn't need two.
The three tires that I'm kinda fond of for street, wet street and dry handling are in no real order. Some will resist hydroplaning very well and still hook up. You don't want a UTOG much over 200 and some places that's the low limit. I've ran these on a 550HP 490TQ Impala and the hook well on a 4300 pound car.
I've tried Falken Azenis rt-614k Very good hook and OK in the rain
Nitto NT05 (best on road course) 44 psi
I've got a buddy with a tire store and we play around some with the 550 HP Impala. Tomorrow morning I'm going to try those sticky Cooper RS-3S 275/40R17. 20,000 miles warranty if using all 4 same size. 10,000 mile warranty if using staggered. Did I mention they're soft.
Don't forget to try these beasts out at some track days also. 2 Minutes around a road course will get you speed, your juices flowing better than a 11-12 second run. You might get out of the car shaking. They're Vettes for god's sake.....make 'em handle.
