I am looking into 18" rear only drag wheels/tyres just for straightline events. Tyres need to be street legal, as I'll bolt them on at home.

I have 400mm front discs so 18" is not an option on the front and by the looks of it the US guys run D/Rs at the back only.

I have never used drag tyres so anyone with any experience would be great.

I'm running 275/35/20 MPSS up front at the moment so tyre size would need to be compatible with that and not upset the FWD clutch.

duly noted ;)

Can anyone list a few wheel manufacturers who do a 18' x 11J wheel?

Preferably who do 20's too as I may change the road wheels to match the drag wheels.

Have a look on JamieP's thread, I'm sure he's running drag radials on the back.

Cheers Jamie, you are a star.

Was hoping to increase the contact patch, I will have a play with the tire calculator.

I see that MT do a 345/35/18, but requires a 12j wheel....

I heard the Nitto not so good as GTR can't burnout to heat them up
