I just wondered whats the best air pressure I should run at the track with my BFG drag radials. The size of them is 225-45-17.
turbo freak is having no problems getting low 1.9's on them.:thumbsup:kingj07 said:dont expect a huge gain by those tires. they are low profile which = stiff sidewall. you will have a wider tread and stronger grip, but dont expect to be dropping a whole lot of time off.
That should be a good setup for you, I recently ran the 225/50/15 @ 20psi and I dropped my 60' times from 2.4-2.5 on street tires to 2.0 on my first run. Dropped the clutch @ 4000 and they grabbed like a bitch. I had to hold on after that.4U2NV said:Yeah dont mean to go off topic... But i ordered the VW 15" steelies from ED. And i ordered 225/50/15 BFG Drag Radials. So this should be a nice little setup. I will have rims in on Monday and tires in on Tuesday. Should i lower tire pressure to around 20 also???
learning how to drive them is learning how to drive them. ive cut at least one 1.9 on borrowed tires of the same size (except 215s, not 225s). but for more practical application you would want to go with 15" wheels/tires.NIVO88T said:turbo freak is having no problems getting low 1.9's on them.:thumbsup:
with those tires you can go 16 lbs once broken in properly. 20 is too high.4U2NV said:Should i lower tire pressure to around 20 also???
If your going with 235/60/15 a better choice is the M/T Dragradial. They are stickier than the BFG's. Unfortunately they dont make them in smaller sizes than the 235/60. They need atleast a 7inch wheel. Cheap wheels if you can find them are old american racing ar-24's.Theyll clear the SRT brakes if you use a 1/8 spacer.dc2ali said:do any of you guys know if the 235/60/15 brg drags will fit on pt steelies? i really wanna get something with a fat sidewall but im worried about the width of the tire on the skinny rims. if so does anyone know where i can get a pair for a good price?
