    Sooooooo, to try and catch up to Chris's headstart on my drag racing career @WetzMS3 I have acquired a set of FD wheels that already come with 2 Nitto 555r's on them and 2 tires I will toss in the trash.

    My question is, where is THE cheapest place to get a couple new tires(drag radials) in size 245/50/16 I believe.

    And my other question is how do I warm them up at the strip? Do I skip the water box like I do now on street tires or what? Thanks for all the help.

    You probably could use good summer tires, on a ms6 I would worry about breaking something if I had too much traction. If you do spin off the line the awd will recover pretty quickly.

    Pretty sure that super skates was on conti dws when he was drag racing.

    Breaking something is fine, most of it is fixable.

    Plus I already snagged the wheel setup that was used on a 3 with 2 555r's on it already.
