ADVICE PLEASE! Mp4-12c drag radial on stock rims!

Hey everyone so I’m almost done with my e85 build and ready for Dyno spectrum to come tune it. I was thinking about putting toyo drag radials on the stock rims. Any advice on tire size or brand from people that have put there 12c down the quarter mile would help.

I have those on my 914-6. They are really good tires, you will not be disappointed. I feel like this car needs drag radials to get any meaningful straight line performance although they do suffer in the handling department.

Do you have steel or carbon ceramic brakes?

What toyo did you pick? They don’t make a drag radial in 20’s do they or did you get an 888 tire?

FYI - there are a lot of 19” wheels that fit and you can run an MT drag radial

You might be the first guy racing on those. Keep us posted and shoot me a message if you have any questions- I have tons of passes done. Dyno Spectrum is legit and awesome guys. You’ll be in point.
