they're horrible drag tires. They have really stiff sidewalls which translates into excellent cornering grip, but you'll find them to be underwhelming for launches at the drag strip where a soft sidewall is what you want.

ok thanks so i guess i wont be getting those then. what about some 225-50-15 M/T et streets for a k20 whould that kill my top-end cause someone told me to get 205-55-15 becouse the 225-50-15 is too big. but i think a wider tire should help more with traction thats y i was thinking to get the 225's. what do you guys think ?

M/T streets are badass tires. u should get it. 225 is fine, u'll get better grip off the go. its not like ur racing to 150+ ... are u? just beat him quick from the start, forget the mile long top end racing style.

Like chunky said the BFG's are great if you're into road racing or autocross, but not drag racing. The M/T et streets are great for drag racing, but don't think you can use these a daily tires. They don't tread water at all. If you want to daily street tire that has the most grip look into BFG drag radials or Nitto drag radials.

Bfg drag radials are great. M/T streets or BFG drag radial any street radial that cuts 1.5s with a good driver either way you're good. I ran 205s and 225s on my K cut 1.8s 0-60fts with horrible alignment specs.
