how much do you want to spend and what size are your rims?

you shouldnt buy a certain brand/model tire just because it looks cool.

you're more likely to brake something with drag radials than with street tires.
i'm not saying it is or its not. it also depends how worn out are the parts on your car right now (axles, tranny, clutch...etc).
something has to give when you launch. if you put down some serious hp you should invest in some aftermarket axles and maybe beef up your tranny.

well i did a bit of research on tires.... i thought i found a nice set of bfgoodrich kdw-2's

for 625 on stock 15 inch rims


but up the street at the rim shop they have a set of nice looking 17 inch konig's with nitto tires on them for 800

so i think im going with them
if no one seems to have a problem with nitto tires

and looks has alot to do with the whole tuner car thing.

trust me you dont want tires that look cool.
you are not gonna look cool when you're gonna go off road because the tires were crap.

if they are nitto 450's (shittos) dont even bother. i've had them on my eclipse gsx and on my civic (crap...every car i bought came with nittos :mad )

i currently have some toyo proxes4 and love them. 100 times better than the shitty nittos.
