460rwhp+3600lbs=what size ET street?

I'm toying around with the idea of buying a set of ET streets to see what breaks first.. block, tranny, or stock rear end My race weight would be around 3600lbs, it's making 461 rwhp, has 3:73's with a T5. I was thinking 26-10.5-15 but i see MT is making it in a 27 and a 28 so i'm just not sure how tall of a tire would be best for my car.. any suggestions?

I would say stick with a 26x10.5" slick for your power level and 3.73's. a 28" tire will be too tall for you no matter who says it will give you more mph. I went 119mph with 464rwhp and a 3550lb race weight on a 26' nitto drag radial. I went 116.5mph on a 28" Et street, so that should tell you what too tall of a tire will do.

I'd be looking at a 26x11.50 on an 8-10" wide wheel. The 10.50 is a very small tire.

26x10.5 will work good for you. I would start out at 14psi for your tire pressure and work from there.

Would there be any clearence issues? Would rolling the lip cure it?

thanks for the help guys, 26x10.5 it will be then.. I have a set of V6 15x7 rims so i have to stay with 10.5" I think.

Depends on the rim and backspaing. I had the 11.50's on an 8.5" Centerline and had no problems, car wasn't low enough to rub the outer lip and it had plenty of room inside on that rim.

ponyboy19, good call. I wouldn't have suggested wider had I known about the narrow rims.
