Hey Fellas,

I've got 15x7 wheels on all 4 corners. If my memory serves me right, i've got 215/50/15 in the back and 205/50/15 in front. I've also got a stock width 8" rear end housing.

What is the best 235/60/15 tire for the rear on the street? I like the BFG drag radials and Michelin Pilots XGT H4. But maybe you guys have better real world experiences. Hey Alex, I know you didn't get the name "MoneyMaker" for nothing

Thanks in advance.

Erik

When I used to street race with street tires we used Goodyear Polyglas tires at very high air pressure. For good all around performance street driving, I like BFG's and Goodyear Eagle ST's.

Eric,

I've always had good luck with BFG radial TA's. If you want them to hook and last maybe 8000 miles try the D/R's.
