Most of the magic in making your radials really work without breaking stuff will be in the clutch. Not enough clutch and it will smoke the clutch, too much clutch and the engine will bog. Way too much clutch and the radials will spin or parts will break. You want just enough clutch to handle the engine's power in high gear without slipping. Problem is, matching the clutch to your engine's NA output and matching it to your engine + 125 shot will be two different clutch setups.

Those tires won't get it done anyways. I run the 275/60 nittos on street an blow them off in any gear. I run a Mickey radial an hook no problem. Ur suspension is setup like a 3rd gen up Camaro an ta and they hook in mud typically. Tires an loosen up front an give it a try
