Nitto 555R. Comes in your size.Anyone used slicks on there car yet at the track? Looking into getting some for the next season and I'm not sure were to start.

Alternately, the BFG drag2 is stickier and won't last nearly as long, but they'll hook!
The Nitto is the better of the two if you're going to drive on them. Particularly if it ever rains.
MT has one for it now, too....but it's pricey.
Not on your stock wheels.I thought that the Nitto 315s would fit the rear too..
You say they're better in th rain than the BFGs? I'm looking to replace the Goodyears with something I can drive with every day - rain or shine.
Well, they will never get an 11.5" wheel under the car without serious modifications. I ran 18x10's on my previous 2005 Mustang GT and a 285 width tire is all I could manage without rubbing on the inner wheelwell/shock or outer fender. Unless the Shelby has different dimensions (which I am pretty sure they do not) I doubt a 315 on any wheels is going to fit unless it sticks out of the fender area. I hope someone proves me wrong.Thanks for the info
So BFG KDW = good but Drag Radials = bad
Nittos - stick with 295 or smaller 555's are good in rain
Which is the better tire at the track?
Justin at VMP posted a set of midded rims widened to (I think) 11.5 inches..
Would like to hear more from him on that...
