Here is my case 2013 Mustang GT Automatic that I want to get Drag Radials for with 18" wheels
1. Stock rims are 18 X 8.5" wide and the MT's for that rim are 25.8 "diameter 1.4" smaller diameter then the stock tires of 27.2. Doesn’t seem like a good combo to me.
2. There is a 26.5" MT for a 10" rim ok I'm willing to go with different 18" rims if needed but it is still almost 1" smaller in diameter then the stock tires. (most expensive)
3. Now M&H makes a 28" DR a little less then an inch bigger then the stock tire in diameter that fits a 10" rim.
But I don’t have much feed back on the M&H's
What would you go with.
This would be for participating in the up coming season of ET Bracket Racing, not just a few weekends here and there and would be for competition
OP, if you are going for the 3.73 gear swap, I think a 28" tall tire will be better for you. I am running 3.55's, and have ran Mickey T's in 275/60 and 255/60. You will definitely see a difference in ET's with a different tire size. With the 275/60's, I could turn on the "Hill Assist", but with the 255/60's it was better to leave the Hill Assist off. Personally, I wouldn't go 3.73's, but good luck next year! JD
