Those are the worst of the DR's but try around 15psi. I had luck there with my BFG's and MT's on my 03 Cobra. Goodluck

With a 275/40/17 nitto I ran 14psi with high 1.7 60FT Nittos dont like alot of hp if your close to stock they should work OK just get them real hot before you run they like heat.
With MTs 275/40/17 15psi I got 1.675,1.671,1.585 60FT with only three trys and very little heat.

I ran mine at 12 psi and could cut consistent 1.60's off my transbrake on motor. Could have done better but my converter was setup tight for a bunch of nitrous. And Nittos like ALOT of heat, don't be afraid to do a John Force burnout.

The best 60ft I had with nittos I dropped the tire pressure to 11 before the massive burnout and ended up cutting a 1.69 60ft. Every car is different though so keep that in mind.

I couldn't get past 2.0 60 ft's with my nitto 555R's! I ran them at 17psi. I tried long burnouts, short burnouts, and no burnouts. Still the same, blew 'em off in 1st gear everytime.

Got some Mickeys and got it fixed!
