    I don't know your offsets etc, but your best bet is a 16" rim with Hoosiers or MT Et Street Radials, 255/50-16s. Either one of those will hook!

    i would find a cheap set of rear wheels for your car on TireRack.com&get some Mickey Thompson Street Radials in as close to ur OEM size as u can

    you could prolly get away with a less formidable(sticky) D/R but these Mickeys are awesome for what we do

    I would suggest either a MT thompson ET street drag radial or the hoosier drag radial. Not sure what your brakes will clear but you should be able to do a 17 no problem.

    You need to know before ordering.

    I would definitely go 16 if possible but check first.

    Ok, grab a 17 and a drag radial with as much sidewall as you can fit. Hoosier or MT are your best options.

    lol,you DEFINITELY do not need nor require those tires;save your money&get a set of the M/T Street radials..although I have to confess if the track is prepped like it usually is at Atco you should be able to hook w a new set of regular all season radials. I could pull 1.81-1.85 60' with a set of OEM Conti's on my 63..your milf mobile is just a lil less powerful Click here to enlarge

    MTHIS likes the Nitto's on his C63&I know Dodger has a few used sets of D/R's,maybe he will sell u a pair

    Bro what Im saying is those are the tires you'd run on a 1800rwhp 7sec TT Viper lol,you can get by with far less tire as you don't have *that* much HP to warrant a 10.5" grudge tire that requires a tube..but it's your car&money so whatever makes ya happy

    different size, but tire would be the same. if buying a setup, might as well do it right and eliminate any preventable tire traction issues right...?

    Yeah but with that mentality why not just buy a bias ply wrinkle wall&not have to worry period,right?
    My point being;its overkill&not needed. Why would u run a tube tire like that when you can run a tubeless setup like the car was designed for? The CLK is not going to have traction issues w normal D/R's as they are good for low 8sec times

    Right, just run a regular drag radial and not a tubeless setup. If going to that extreme I would say bias-ply all the way.
