Tried the 275/40/17 M/T DR and my 500 rwhp fox body would not hook worth of crÃ¥p, at the track you need wrinkle in those tires, go with 15 in. draglites and the ET Streets with sidewall and you will hook so hard you'll break parts.
the streets wobble at the end of the track don't they?
Probably not on a 17" rim. Just not enough sidewall there to flex much.
I use to have problems with 26x10 ET Drags on the stock rear turbine wheels (15") with standard 225/60 radials up front. It would move around a bit on the big end. No problems now with 28x10.5 and Moroso front skinnies.
