Doesn't say where you are located but I have a nice set of 275/40/20 Mickey Thompsons on Bravado Tributes 20x9.5 for sale in Michigan for $700. Cost $1200 new

Finally was able to make it out to the track last Wednesday night. Air was hot and humid. I found the best way with my current tires is to back into the box and roll them clean. No smoke, but just enough to make them chirp.

Grabbed a 60' of 2.12, but due to the shitty air only ran a 13.78 @ 101.8mph. You could literally feel and hear the engine flatten out due to the air temps in 3rd gear. Track temp was 121 on that pass.

Finally have decided on a wheel and tire combo. I'm ordering a set of staggered 20" Demon replica wheels. Up front will be 275/40/20 tires out back will be 305/35/20 Mickey Thompson DR's.

I had to take the time to decide whether I'd actually like satin black wheels on my car. I'll post pics when they come in.

I'll have them on the next time I'm at the track.

Placed my order on the 4th of July so that delays shipping a bit. I live in Ohio and ordered the tires and TPMS sensors from Summit. They should be here no later then Monday.

The Demon replica wheels are from Factory Reproductions, and are shipping from California. That may take a while🤬. They offered overnight air for $1,800 but the wife said no. That's not true. She actually said "Yeah...I don't ****ing think so!" So FEDEX ground it is!
Next track day is July 10th. I probably won't go unless the air is really good and it looks like my wheels won't be here before then.

Once everything is here, the local Firestone dealer said they'll mount and balance all 4 for $120 out the door.

Thanks guys for all the track tips. I'll be using a lot of then to figure out what the DR's like.

The 275 and 305 are crazy compared to the 245. Should look killer going down the road and grip at the track.

Wheel are scheduled for delivery Thursday. I'll keep you guys posted.

One of the 20x9.5 wheels showed up today. They were all scheduled for delivery tomorrow. I have the day off, so it would have been nice to get them all. Now I'll be stuck waiting until next week to get them on the car.

FR did a good job with packaging the wheel. The face was well protected and came flawless. Being in Ohio, I was worried with them shipping from Chino California.

I dropped everything off(wheels, tires, sensors)at the tire shop Friday morning. While I was at work(2nd shift) my wife called and asked if I was good to bring the car in Saturday morning to get them put on. The guy said he hadn't even programmed the sensors yet. He told her my wheels would be ready Sunday morning. So I guess I'm waiting until then.

I didn't have time to take any good pictures of the car with the wheels and tires on. I had to rush to get to work. I took a couple shots while it was in the garage.

I really like those wheels and have a similar set(Hellraisers with NTO5R's) and you are gonna love the hookup!
Looks good!
I just recently put my stock tires back on(all season Pirelli's) and quickly realized how sticky the DR's are on the street also.
I was spinning and sliding a lot.
Maybe I need to slow down a little.

I noticed the grip right away. I hooked with traction control off with just a chirp. It should drastically improve my 60' times. That's a whole lot of tire holding it down.
