    Auto 10 speed. Just drag at this point.

    You want the Mickey Thompson ET Street R (radial version) or something similar.
    @msweet thoughts on sizing etc?

    Thank you very much Burkey. How about tyres for both circuit and drag?

    No dramas. A cheap option is the Federal RSRR. They come in a 275/35/19 which makes them a little smaller than stock but they’re “ok”.
    Not great for drag racing although better than stock and reasonable for track. Basically a cheap way of filling a gap.
    I managed a 1.7 60’ on them (manual) which is decent for the setup I was running at the time.

    the 275/40r17 ET street Rs that I use seem to be doing the trick. Any more than simple bolt ons and I think the 305/45r17 would be a better option though

    @msweet what wheels are you using, and where did you buy those tyres and wheels? I can only see one or two that have those tyres online.

    I'm using Motegi MR135 17x9.5+45, I bought the tyres off ebay. I think the tyres came from Rocket Industries but can't remember exactly. Wheels I ordered from Showster, they had to order them from the states. The setup cost me $1150
