Assuming your Dart block is an iron block the 150x14's above would likely be a good choice. With my aluminum 03 Mach 1 motor, I use 130x14's which work very well.

99 coupe. C4/8” 5000 stall w/2003 Mach crate motor FRPP stock N/A, Kooks LT's and X,dumps no muffs. 4.56's
Best ET 11.42 Best MPH 116.33Best 60" 1.49
Coincidence. A convenient and overused word for the mentally lazy.

Yes iron block. Glad to see some agreement.
I would have thought 175+ with the heft of this car.

I actually missed the weekend street toy part of your post. On the street 175x14 would not be bad. Race only 150.
