I want to put some sticky tires on my SVT and through down a good time, but I hear the smallest rims that will fit is 16's, I have a set of 16" Contour SVT wheel, but can I fit anything wider on, and what would be best size/tire for drag radial, right now I am getting 2.5 60' times, so I really need to do something.
14.9 @ 93.5. I know I could knock some time off with a decent 60' time, but its not happening with what I got now. I am using stock rims with kumho mx's, and their great for handling, but suck straight line.
I have got fiberglass rear seat delete, no sub and spare, (weight reduction), AEM CAI, AFX UDP, Cam gear, no t/c, test pipe, borla, maybe something else I can't think of, right now I have pretty much all bolt ons available short of nitrous or f/i. Stock clutch, all that crap. Also use kumho 215/45/17 ecsta mx's. They suck, its like if I am going to get traction I get bad wheel hop and bog, or I just spin like crazy, or just spin lightly and bog. Also have poly mounts and short throw.
Well, I talked to a guy who has a 300+ hp SVT, and he runs 245/16 BFG G-Force drag radials and got a best of a 2.1 60' time. With the kind of power he's making thats pretty good, and I would think running that tire would help us svt guys out quite a bit over what we have been using.
