I'm looking for the road legal/race tyres similar to the ones the Street Eliminator lot use. I tend to get a blank when anyone talks about them for some reason.

The car currently runs 245x60x15's and there's not much room left around them for anything bigger.
Anyone got any preferences and approximate costs ?

If not, would I be better off buying normal road tyres (approx £50.00 each) and getting a pair of slicks 2nd hand ?
I have a spare set of wheels, but would prefer the 1st option as I want to see what the car does in full street trim rather than cheating a little with slicks. ;)

we used a 275 50 mickey thompson drag radial on a road car, it wasnt very nice as a road tyre to be honest, found the car to wonder on uneven road surfaces, was good on strip though.
depends what you have in mind usage wise?
for quickest poss et id go with the slicks and have a normal road tyre for road use :bigsmile:

Cheers guys.
At £300.00 a pair I might go down the road tyres and slicks route.

I'll check a few things out over the Winter I think, see what turns up.
